As part of the UK Government’s new Green Homes Grant Scheme, vouchers worth up to £10,000 will be given to homeowners and landlords to make their homes more energy efficient.
Most homeowners and landlords will receive vouchers up to £5,000, whilst those on low incomes will receive up to £10,000. But depending on which category you fall into, the scheme works slightly differently.
The Green Homes Grant will cover a variety of energy saving home improvements.A list of energy saving measures that are supported by the scheme has been released.The measures are split into two parts – primary and secondary. Below is a broad list of the measures included, but these are subject to approval.
You can have one or more of the above under the scheme.To qualify for the secondary measures, you must have one of the primary measures carried out and the cost of the secondary measures must not exceed that of the primary measure(s).
Exact details on the eligibility criteria has not yet been released by the Treasury, but we expect that most homeowners and landlords will be covered in some capacity.
Applications for the Green Homes Grant Scheme will open in September and will take place via the Simple Energy Advice website.
