What is the Green Homes Grant?
On Tuesday 7th July the Government announced a new £2 billion scheme. The scheme helps homeowners across England improve the energy efficiency of their homes. Customers will be able to apply for the Green Homes Grant in September 2020 and it will run until March 2021. The government will provide a voucher towards the cost of installing energy efficient and low-carbon heating improvements to homes in England. The voucher will cover up to two-thirds of the cost for homeowners and landlords, and up to 100% of the cost for low-income households.
How do I get the Green Homes Grant?
Later this month, homeowners across England will be able to access advice and support on improving the energy efficiency of their homes via the Simple Energy Advice Service. Households will be offered a list of approved TrustMark and MCS registered tradespeople in their local area to carry out the work. Once the works are agreed, vouchers will start to be issued from the end of September so work can commence.
