Hales & Coultas are pleased to let you know about some exciting news which the Government has announced earlier this month in relation to further details on their new £2 Billion Green Homes Grant which is to go live in September.
The Green Homes Grant Scheme was first announced on 8 July 2020 by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in his Summer Statement.
As stated in the article quality assurance is at the heart of the £2 billion grant scheme with MCS accreditation being required direct from us, the installer or via an accredited ‘umbrella scheme’ providers. Consumers in England will be able to claim these green home grant vouchers upfront worth up to £5,000 for homeowners. Households on low income can receive vouchers covering 100% of the cost of the improvements, up to a maximum of £10,000.
The government has now confirmed that homeowners will be able to spend vouchers with installers who are accredited to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (for renewable technologies) standard to install one or more of the following:
• solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
• air source or ground source heat pump
• solar thermal
In addition, households can use their voucher for further energy saving measures (but only in conjunction with those primary measures shown above). These include one or more of the following:
• double or triple glazing/secondary glazing, when replacing single glazing
• upgrading to energy efficient doors
• hot water tank/appliance tank thermostats/heating controls
The Government believes these measures could help homeowners save up to £600 a year on their energy bills - here's how the scheme works.
RHI is Government funding to help for renewable heat technologies.
