Government grants available to help with green heating

Apply for a Green Homes Grant now

The Green Homes Grant Scheme has now launched. The government will provide a voucher worth up to £5,000 or £10,000 to help cover the cost of making energy-efficient improvements to your home. Improvements could include insulating your home to reduce your energy use or installing low-carbon heating to lower the amount of carbon dioxide your home produces.

You must redeem the voucher and ensure improvements are completed by 31 March 2021.

The government will provide a voucher that covers two-thirds of the cost of qualifying energy efficiency or low carbon heating improvements to your home. The maximum value of the voucher is £5,000.

If you are on a low income and receive certain benefits, you can receive a voucher covering all of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of the voucher is £10,000.

To apply for the voucher, you must either:

own your home (including park homeowners, long-leaseholders and shared ownership)

be a private or social landlord

Vouchers must be used to install at least one primary home insulation or low carbon heating measure as follows:

Insulation measures

solid wall

under floor

cavity wall

loft

flat or pitched roof

room in roof

insulating a park home

Low carbon heat measures

air source, ground source or hybrid heat pump

solar thermal

biomass boilers

If you choose to install at least one of the primary measures, you can use your voucher to help cover the cost of secondary measures including:

draught-proofing

double/triple glazing (where replacing single glazed windows)

secondary glazing (in addition to single glazing)

external energy-efficient doors (replacing single glazed or solid doors installed before 2002)

heating controls

hot water tank thermostats and insulation
