The Green Homes Grant

The Green Homes Grant scheme supports energy efficiency measures in existing homes across England. It will reduce the upfront costs of ground source heat pump installations.

The scheme, which runs until 31st March 2021, provides vouchers that cover up to two-thirds of home improvement costs, up to a maximum of £5,000. Low-income households may be eligible for a voucher covering 100% of the costs, up to a value of £10,000. The voucher can be used in conjunction with the Renewable Heat Incentive.

Who is the Green Homes Grant for?

The Green Homes Grant is for homeowners and landlords looking to improve the energy efficiency of existing homes across England.
The scheme offers vouchers up to £5,000 for energy efficiency upgrades, covering up to two-thirds of the cost of energy-saving measures.
Low-income households, or those in receipt of certain benefits, will receive a voucher to cover the entire cost of the home improvements up to a maximum value of £10,000.
Green Homes Grant vouchers can be used in conjunction with the Renewable Heat Incentive, too.

What can Green Homes Grant vouchers be used for?

Vouchers

We are dedicated to providing comprehensive London plumber, electrician and heating services, ensuring that our fully-qualified engineers can offer you exactly what you need.

Primary measures

The voucher must be used to install at least one primary measure. The primary categories of improvements supported by the grant include one or more of the following:

  • Solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
  • Air source or ground source heat pump
  • Solar thermal

Insulation for low-carbon heating

Households must have sufficient insulation in order to install low-carbon heating. These improvements do not have to be in situ – they can be installed as part of a package.

‘Topping up’ measures

Top-up measures – such as loft insulation to the recommended level – are allowed, but replacements are excluded.

Secondary measures

If you install at least one primary measure, the Green Homes Grant may also help cover the cost of any secondary measures afterwards.

The secondary categories covered by the scheme 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

Amount cannot exceed that of primary measures

The amount you receive for secondary measures is capped at the same amount you received for a primary measure. For example, if you received £1,500 towards a primary measure, you are only allowed up to £1,500 towards secondary measures.

Remember: You can only redeem a secondary measure voucher once you have installed the primary measure and redeemed the voucher.

What does the voucher cover?

The costs associated with the work, and covered by the voucher, include:

  • Labour
  • Materials
  • VAT
