PCH carrying out EPC programme

PCH Sheltered Housing Plymstock

Over the next 12 months, we will be carrying out a programme to ensure all our homes have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) tells us how energy efficient your home is. An EPC is a graph a bit like the sticker you get on a new fridge or freezer which tells you about the appliance’s energy performance.

Typically, an EPC contains:

  • Information about a home’s energy use and typical energy costs.
  • Steps to improve a home’s energy efficiency and save money.

Around 74% of our homes have a current EPC, but we’re planning on having 100% over the next 12-18 months. 

The EPC allows us to see what energy efficiency improvements we can make to our homes to make them more energy efficient – making your home warmer and saving you money on your energy bills.

We are planning on completing 2,000 EPC surveys on outstanding homes over the next year starting this June.

We’ll be sending out letters to the homes that we need to carry out the surveys in.

The Government has set social landlords a target of bringing all their homes up to a minimum of an EPC rating of C by 2030 and we have set this out as one of our Business Plan objectives – to decarbonise our homes by 2050.

Reducing our carbon use across our homes and businesses is really important to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and avoid dangerous climate change in years to come.
