Green Homes Grant
A £2 billion Green Homes Grant, intended to make homes more energy efficient, is now live. The scheme allows for 600,000 homes in England and Wales to receive grants for making thermal performance and energy saving measures. This is open to homeowners and landlords and will allow them to claim for vouchers worth up to £5,000 or £10,000 for low income households.
These primary home improvements could include installing a solid wall insulation system to reduce heat loss, or converting to a biomass boiler to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide a home produces. As well as covering primary measures, the grant is also available for secondary measures such as draught proofing, installing double or triple glazing (when replacing single glazing) or smart heating controls.
