What is the Green Homes Grant?

The Green Homes Grant is a £2 billion scheme, launched by the government, to help homeowners pay for energy saving improvements for their homes by installing measures such as wall insulation, solar panels and air source heat pumps.

This is to improve the warmth of homes, cut energy bills and help the UK to be zero-carbon by 2050.

How does the Green Homes Grant work?

Local authorities in England can bid for funding to help homes in their area pay for energy efficiency measures through the Local Authority Delivery scheme. They can then select partners to deliver the home improvements grants on their behalf.

Initially, the Green Homes Grant scheme was split into two areas; one where eligible households can apply for free funding through their local authority, and a second part where customers who didn’t meet the eligibility criteria could receive a voucher to cover up to two-thirds of the cost of the improvements, however this part has recently been stopped.

Since the beginning of the scheme we have only worked in partnership with local authorities to provide free energy efficiency upgrades and have not dealt with the voucher element of the scheme.

Who is eligible for a Green Homes Grant?

You’re eligible for the Green Homes Grant and Local Authority Delivery Scheme if:

  • Your home has an EPC energy efficiency rating of E, F or G
  • And your household income is less than £30,000 or someone in your home receives a means-tested benefit such as Universal Credit, Income Support, and more. You can check all of the the benefits that meet our eligibility criteria on our application form.
  • If you’d like to find out more about the eligibility criteria you can call us on 0333 456 0879.
