Email your MP asking for a Future Homes Standard fit for the future!

New building regulations are due to be introduced in 2025 called the Future Homes Standard, which will decide how every new home will be built. But there is a problem - Government has not ruled out allowing new homes to be connected to the gas grid, and are also considering not making solar PV mandatory.

This is a real risk to our net zero and energy security goals, as well as meaning homeowners will have to retrofit their homes at a later date.

Given that a recent YouGov survey of MPs showed that seven in ten MPs (69%) believe all new homes should be built with solar panels on their roofs, and nearly seven in ten (67%) believe all new homes should have electric vehicle (EV) charging, we know there is strong support in Parliament for making the FHS fit for the future - but we need to keep getting the message to them!
