There are a number of grants available for homeowners, businesses, Local Authorities and community groups to help improve energy efficiency in the South East Region. 3cea is your local Project Coordinator and our role is to work as project managers for your grant application. We will manage the entire process for you from start to finish, taking all of the hassle out of your energy upgrade project.
Our success in reaching the 2030 targets depends on how we work together with homeowners, businesses, Local Authorities and communities to deliver energy efficiency, clean energy, behaviour change and ultimately gain greater sustainability.
