Our services

More and more people are retrofitting their homes to reduce energy bills, cut carbon emissions, improve their health and transform cold, neglected rooms into cosy, well-used spaces.

But retrofit isn’t always straightforward and queries and concerns are common, particularly at the start. What are the right measures for my home? Who are the most experienced, trustworthy contractors? What is the best price? How long will it take? What degree of improvement will I see?

People Powered Retrofit is here to help. We are a not-for-profit service for householders in Greater Manchester, offering clear, independent advice and support to help you plan, procure and deliver your retrofit project to a high standard.

Supported by Government and run by community energy co-operative, Carbon Co-op and design and research cooperative, URBED, our aim is to help more householders in Greater Manchester to retrofit their properties.

We offer a range of services to help you achieve your retrofit goals. From designing your project to helping you procure the best contractors; overseeing quality assurance to offering impartial, expert advice, we can help you every step of the way. If you want, we can manage the entire process or just help you with specific phases – it’s up to you.
