What is the Green Homes Grant?
The UK Government announced a new Green Homes Grant last summer, providing thousands of homeowners with more energy efficiency, which will support jobs in green construction as the UK start the transition to a net-zero economy.
The Vouchers will cover two-thirds of the cost of eligible improvements, up to a maximum government contribution of £5,000. If you, or someone in your household, receive certain benefits you may be eligible for a voucher covering 100% of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of the voucher is £10,000.
You must redeem the voucher and ensure improvements are completed by 31 March 2022.
Heat Pumps and Solar Thermal systems are at the heart of the Government’s plan for the Green Homes Grant
Heat pumps are listed as a “first line measure” alongside insulation, which clearly demonstrates the impact a heat pump can have at reducing carbon emissions from a home. Heat pumps have long been central to the Government’s plans for UK housing to reduce carbon emissions towards the “net zero” emissions target. In order to access funding, customers have to install at least one first line measure, since these measures are deemed to make the biggest difference to the energy efficiency of the home.
Additionally, the vouchers from the government for the Green Homes Grant cover low carbon heating measures includes some of the products listed below:
- Air Source Heat Pump
- Ground Source Heat Pump
- Solar Thermal (liquid filled flat plate or evacuated tube collector)
- Biomass Boiler
