What is the the Green Homes Grant

What we know so far about the Government announce Green Homes Grant

The Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme will close to new applications from householders on Wednesday 31 March at 5pm.

Vouchers up to a value of £5,000 are available to applicants in England to improve the energy efficiency of their home, with a further £5,000 offered to residents with low incomes or on certain benefits.

The Government will set aside £2 million for the Green Homes Grant, in an attempt to improve the UK's housing stock whilst creating jobs in the slump after the coronavirus lockdown.

What will the Green Homes Grant cover?

The vouchers available will contribute towards primary measures such as:

Once a primary measure is fitted, the vouchers extend to secondary measures such as:

  • Double glazing
  • Draught proofing
  • Energy efficient doors
  • Heating controls

How much money will I get from the Green Homes Grant?

The vouchers will cover two-thirds of the cost of the measure for the majority of householders, up to a limit of £5,000.

This means there will need to be a contribution from the householder.

However there is more support may be available for those on lower incomes and benefits, with vouchers fully covering the cost of installs up to a value of £10,000.

With relatively little contribution required, residents would be able to save hundreds of pounds in the long run by benefiting from a more energy efficient home.

How can I apply for a Green Homes voucher?

The scheme is available to apply to, with the Simple Energy Advice (SEA) government service providing information on the process.

All homeowners can apply, and the scheme is also open to landlords of private and social housing.

Only TrustMark and MCS approved installers will be able to install the measures.

We are helping customers through the application process and directing them to our industry accredited installers.

(In Yorkshire & Humberside, North West, West Midlands, and central areas of the South East, East of England and the South West only.)

(In Yorkshire & Humberside, North West and certain parts of the West Midlands only.)

We are working with a number of our industry accredited installer partners to install the measures.

What other funding options are available?

You could get a grant to cover or contribute towards the cost of your home efficiency improvements through the Government’s Energy Company Obligations (ECO) scheme instead.

YES Energy Solutions works directly with major energy companies and has contracts in place to draw down ECO funding for eligible customers. We can check to see if you qualify for any support.

Depending on your circumstances, your property and the energy saving measures you choose, we may find that we can access a grant to cover the majority of the cost of the work.

Get in touch to find out what ECO funding we currently have available.
