The Green Homes Grant Scheme
On 8 July 2020, the UK Government announced the Green Home Grants Scheme for landlords and homeowners to help make their property more energy efficient.
Under the scheme landlords and homeowners in England can apply for a voucher to fund at least two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy performance of their homes, up to a maximum contribution of £5,000 or up to £10,000 for lower-income households.
The aim of the Green Home Grant is to upgrade over 600,000 homes across England, with the UK Government saying that this will save households hundreds of pounds per year on their energy bills.
The scheme is now open for applications, if you’d like to find out more please click on the link below.
