How Green Homes Grant Works
- The government will pay 2/3 of the cost of improvements to homeowners and landlords up to the value of £5,000 to install Primary & Secondary measures.
E.g. If the cost is £7,500 you will only have to pay £2,500 and the government would pay the remaining £5,000
This is where we can assist you to obtain the maximum you are entitled to under the scheme, which is only available until March 2021.
Firstly, every homeowner & landlord wishing to upgrade their properties must undertake a primary measure. Once that is completed, they can apply for a secondary measure.
Low carbon heat
In addition, households can obtain a SECONDARY measure for further energy-saving (as long as a PRIMARY measure has been undertaken first).
Note: The amount you can get from a secondary measure cannot exceed the amount you get from a primary measure.
E.g. If you claim £1,500 for insulation in the primary measure, then you can only get a maximum amount for double glazing of £1,500 in the secondary measure.
However, you do not need to have the secondary measure if you don’t want it.
This depends on your earnings. Households earning over £30,000 pa, can claim up to £5,000 on improvements but will need to contribute a third to the overall costs. Those earning less than £30,000pa are eligible for up to £10,000 without contributing any money towards the improvements.
