More information about the scheme

The Green Homes Grant scheme, in which the government will pay up to two thirds of energy efficiency home improvements up to the value of £10,000, has now launched. Homeowners and landlords in England will be granted vouchers for home improvements measures, such as the installation of insulation and heat pumps.The scheme will run until March 2021.

You must be registered to TrustMark to take part in the scheme and to install the low carbon heating measures, you must also be Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accredited.

What the voucher can be used for

The home improvement measures that are available under this scheme are split into ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ measures. The voucher must be used to install at least one primary measure before the voucher can be used to help cover the cost of a secondary measure.

Primary Measures
  • Low carbon heating
  • Air source heat pumps Ground source heat pumps Solar thermal Biomass boilers Underfloor heating Radiators
  • Insulation (solid wall, under floor, cavity wall, loft, flat roof and room in roof)
Secondary Measures
  • Heating controls
  • Hot water tank thermostats and insulation
  • Double/triple glazing (only where replacing single glazing)
  • Energy efficient doors (only when replacing single glazed or solid doors installed before 2002)
  • Draft proofing

How does it work?

For most homeowners and landlords, the vouchers will cover around two-thirds of the cost of the measures, up to a value of £5,000 per household. For low income households it will cover the full cost of the measures, up to £10,000 per household.

To obtain a voucher, homeowners and landlords in England will be able to seek advice from the Simple Energy Advice (SEA) service about what energy efficiency improvements can be made to the property and then find local accredited installers to obtain quotes from.

Who is eligible to apply?

To be eligible for the vouchers, applicants must either: own their home (including park home owners, long-leaseholders and shared ownership) or be a landlord (private or social).

The low income scheme is only available for homeowners and park homeowners who receive at least one income-based or disability benefit.

Only homes in England are eligible for the scheme. New-build domestic and non-domestic properties are exempt.

How can I get involved?

You must be registered with Trust Mark to take part in the scheme, and to install the low carbon heating measures of the scheme, you must also be Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accredited.

Households will be able to find accredited tradespeople using the Simple Energy Advice website
