It is part of the UK Government's £3billion investment in green technology, and part of the 2050 carbon neutral target. This is split into:
- £1billion to upgrade public buildings and social housing
- £2billion towards vouchers and making homes energy-efficient.
Low income households may be eligible for the full cost of Green Building house improvements, up to £10,000.
For other households the grant is to cover at least two thirds of the cost, up to £5,000.
Homeowners will be able to use the grant for anything commonly reducing heat loss and saving on energy bills, this includes:
Insulation - In the Roof, Loft, Floor or Walls
Green Applicances - Green Boilers, Air Source Heat Pumps, Ground Source Heat Pumps and MVHR.
Windows - Double glazed, triple glazed and PassivHaus certified
Lighting - low-energy lighting (suggesting LED)
Doors - including triple glazed and PassivHaus certified doors.
A list of accredited suppliers will be available in September
According to the UK Government, the scheme will save households £300 a year on energy bills.
Given our experience in the sector this depends heavily on:
- The state and age of your property
- The items you wish to upgrade
- The extent of your project ( Whether it is part of a larger project or not )
- The design and strategy
