Green Homes Grant
Thursday 1st October 2020
If you're a homeowner or residential landlord who's looking to reduce your energy use (and consequently energy costs), you should consider applying for a Green Homes Grant Voucher through the Green Homes Grant Scheme. Put simply, this is a government funded scheme that will contribute towards the costs of installing energy efficient improvements in your home. Some options available to you would include insulation your home to reduce your energy use or installing low-carbon heating to minimise the amount of carbon dioxide that your home produces.
If you apply for the scheme, you could receive a voucher that will cover two thirds of the cost of any eligible home improvements you carry out. This sum is capped at £5000, but you can make a whole lot of positive changes to your property for this amount of money! It's worth checking whether you or anyone in your household receives benefits that could cover 100% of the cost of improvements too! If this is the case, you could receive a voucher totaling up to £10,000.
To be eligible for the scheme, you must own your own home, own your own park home on a residential site or be a residential landlord in the private or social rented sector. This offer is only available for a limited time, so make sure to check your eligibility as soon as possible. This is a great way to save money and help the planet at the same time!
