The new £2 billion Green Homes Grant scheme will fund up to two-thirds of the cost of energy saving home improvements in England.
What is the Green Homes Grant scheme?
Under the Green Homes Grant Scheme, homeowners and landlords in England will be able to apply for vouchers worth up to two thirds of the cost of upgrading the energy efficiency of their home. For most people, the maximum contribution will be £5,000. Households on low incomes will be eligible for up to 100% funding, up to a maximum of £10,000.
Who can get Green Homes Grant scheme vouchers?
Only homeowners, including owner occupiers and social/private landlords, in England will be able to access the scheme.
How do you get the vouchers?
Advice and support on energy efficiency improvements will be available to homeowners from the Simple Energy Advice service.
Simple Energy Advice will suggest appropriate home improvements that homeowners may be able to apply for support in funding.
They will then direct households to a list of approved TrustMark and or Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) registered tradespeople in their local area to carry out the work. Which is us!
Once the works are agreed, vouchers will start to be issued from the end of September.
We have been MCS registered for more than 10 years
What work can you do with the Green Homes Grant Scheme vouchers?
The Green Homes Grant Scheme will provide vouchers to install one or more energy saving measures, including:
Air source or ground source heat pump (where the home has, or is having installed wall and loft insulation)
solar thermal (where the home has, or is having installed wall and loft insulation)
Households will need to install at least one of these measures above to qualify for funding.
In addition, you can use your voucher for further energy saving measures, including one or more of the following:
- double or triple glazing/secondary glazing, when replacing single glazing
- upgrading to energy efficient doors
- hot water tank/appliance tank thermostats/heating controls
- What can we do for you?
First – We will need to agree a quote to carry out the works, whether that be installing a ground or air source heat pump to replace the existing boiler at your property
You will then be able to apply for the vouchers to compensate the works!
