Green Homes Grant Scheme

13 August 2020

Later this month, under the Green Homes Grant scheme, homeowners in England can check eligibility for vouchers worth up to two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy efficiency of their home – the maximum contribution will be £5,000, or for those on lower incomes, a 100% grant up to £10,000 will be available for certain work. 

The vouchers, which will be issued from the end of September, will help pay for energy efficiency improvements, that will help cut energy bills and potentially save families hundreds of pounds a year.

A statement from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS),  said consumers will be able to use a TrustMark Registered Business from their local area to carry out energy-efficient measures in and around their homes. They will be able to use the vouchers to install one or more of the following:

solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
air source or ground source heat pump
solar thermal

In addition, households can use their voucher for further energy-saving measures. These include 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

The grant scheme is available until the end of March 2021.
