At Bristol City Leap, we are passionate about delivering low-carbon, energy-efficient, and cost-saving measures to homes across the South West through our Bright Green Homes project. Partnering with Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council, and Bath and North East Somerset Council, we aim to support households in installing a range of insulation and low-carbon technologies. We are delighted to share the story of Clive Carpenter, a resident who benefited from our Bright Green Homes scheme.

Clive Carpenter’s Experience

Clive Carpenter, a resident who received free energy-saving measures through our scheme, shares his journey:
“We’ve had free energy-saving solar panels and a heat pump installed in our house. I was motivated by an advert from Bright Green Homes and thought it was a super idea, saving me money and hopefully doing a little bit for the planet.

From the day I applied for domestic Bright Green Homes, the service was excellent. We had a survey, which was excellent. They then came and measured up, which was excellent. They then came and fitted it, which was excellent. Now we just want the sunshine, which will be, excellent.

My interaction with the installers was great. They arrived on Tuesday morning, 2nd January, and started working straight away at around seven-forty. Everything was clean and tidy. I think it’s great. I enjoy when the sun comes out, and it is saving us money. Hopefully, it’s doing something for the environment.

Initially, we couldn’t believe it was free. But after learning more about the scheme and realising there are funds available, we decided to go for it. It’s the best thing we’ve ever done. We’ve recommended it to two people already. What more can I say? Everything’s great. My wife, Carol, kept asking, ‘Is it really free? What’s the catch?’ And there was no catch. It’s up to the individual to take advantage of it, and we did. Thank you very much.”
