Confusion over “official” Green Energy letter: Have you received one?


Quite a few residents have been in touch with Harrogate Borough Council (HBC) about a letter which has been landing on door mats across our area in the last month.

The letter concerns a ‘green homes grant’ and features a logo which looks suspiciously like the Harrogate Borough Council logo–shown above.  An 01423 number to call suggests it could be official.  It isn’t.

In fact, the letter is from a private company in Rochdale.  It doesn’t break any laws.

However, you can get access to the green homes grant without the need to use a third-party organisation which may charge you a fee.

You can find out more information about the financial help available to improve the energy efficiency of your home – and check your eligibility – on the government’s website
