Green Homes Grant announced to improve energy efficiency

Thu 9 July 2020

The Chancellor announced on Wednesday the 8th July, as part of additional economic measures in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, that the UK Government will introduce a new £2 billion Green Homes Grant for landlords and homeowners to help make their properties 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.

Andrew Luxton, Partner Stags Residential Lettings explains "the scheme is open to anyone who would benefit from eligible energy efficiency measures. Homeowners will be able to apply for a Green Homes Grant through the Simple Energy Advice website.  After answering some basic questions about their home, applicants will be recommended eligible energy efficiency measures, along with local accredited suppliers. Once an application has been approved vouchers will be issued and final payment made on completion of work by an accredited supplier.
