A new Government scheme has launched called the Green Homes Grant which will help homeowners in England improve the energy efficiency of their properties via a £5,000 grant. The grant can be used for a whole range of energy saving improvements including double-glazing, loft insulation, solid wall insulation and floor insulation.
Improving the thermal efficiency of the envelope of the property (floor, walls and roof) in our opinion is the best way to help lower homeowner’s energy bills and also reach the Governments ambitious energy targets.
In total, the Chancellor Rishi Sunak has put aside £2 billion for the Green Homes Grant scheme, meaning a minimum of 400,000 homeowners in England should benefit.
It is expected that everyone will be able to apply for this grant – it will not be means tested.
The Scheme is due to run until the end of March 2021.
