Green Home Grant Scheme 

What is the Green Home Grants Scheme?

The Green Home Grants Scheme is a new scheme by the UK Government.

The aim of the scheme is to enable homeowners and landlords to upgrade their homes and properties with energy-saving features as insulation, such as solid wall, cavity wall or loft insulation, in order to reduce energy usage and improve the energy efficiency of a property. 

What are the details of the scheme?

Under the Green Homes Grant scheme, eligible homeowners can use vouchers issued by the Government to help pay for energy efficient improvements.  These measures include ‘primary measures’ such as external wall insulation and air source heating and ‘secondary measures’ like double glazing and smart thermostats. It is part of a £2bn pound fund, meaning householders can claim up to £5,000 towards any measures. Those in low income households will be able to claim up to £10,000.
