WHAT IS THE

Green Homes Grant

The government will provide a voucher worth up to £5,000 or in some cases up to £10,000 to help cover the cost of making energy efficient improvements to your home. Improvements could include insulating your home to reduce your energy use or installing low-carbon heating to lower the amount of carbon dioxide your home produces and save on energy costs. You must redeem the voucher and ensure improvements are completed by 31 March 2021. Register with us now so that we can apply for the voucher from the end of September. In the meantime, you can find out what improvements can be made to your home and we will arrange quotes from certified tradespeople.

Eligibility

To apply for the voucher, you must either:

• own your home (including park home owners, long-leaseholders and shared ownership) • be a private or social landlord

Your property must be in England to be eligible for the scheme. Landlords cannot apply for the low-income portion of the scheme. New-build properties that have not previously been occupied are not eligible for the scheme. You cannot apply for the scheme if you have already received a grant from your local authority as part of the Local Authority Delivery Scheme.

How much you can get

The government will provide a voucher that covers two-thirds of the cost of qualifying energy efficiency or low carbon heating improvements to your home. The maximum value of the voucher is £5,000. If you are on a low income and receive certain benefits, you can receive a voucher covering all of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of the voucher is £10,000. The installer will request and receive payment from the government for the costs covered by the voucher.

What the voucher can be used for

The available measures are split into ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ measures.

Primary measures

The voucher must be used to install at least 1 primary measure. This can be an insulation measure and/or a low carbon heating measure.

Insulation measures

The following insulation measures are covered by the voucher:

solid wall
under floor
cavity wall
loft
flat roof
room in roof
insulating a park home

 

Low carbon heat measures

The following low carbon heating measures are covered by the voucher:

air or ground source heat pump
solar thermal (liquid filled flat plate or evacuated tube collectors)
biomass boilers
Further information on these measures will be announced soon.

You cannot use the voucher to help pay for works that were carried out prior to the voucher being issued.

You cannot use the voucher to replace insulation or low carbon heating measures that are already installed in your home. However, you can use the voucher to ‘top up’ existing measures (for example, installing additional loft insulation up to the recommended level).

 

Secondary measures

If you install at least 1 primary measure, your voucher can be used to help cover the cost of any of the following secondary measures:

draught proofing
double/triple glazing (where replacing single glazed windows)
secondary glazing (in addition to single glazing)
external energy efficient doors (replacing single glazed or solid doors installed before 2002)
heating controls
hot water tank thermostats and insulation
The amount you get towards the cost of secondary measures cannot exceed the amount you get for primary measures.

Items not covered by the voucher

There are certain items that are not covered by the voucher, including:

building a new extension or conversion to your home
insulating a conservatory with no fixed heating
installing a new fossil fuel boiler (such as gas, oil or LPG boilers)
