Homeowners

What is the Green Homes Grant?

The government will provide a voucher up to £5,000 that covers up to two-thirds of the cost of energy efficiency and low carbon heat improvements to your home. See which improvements are included in the scheme below.

You may be able to receive a bigger grant if you are a homeowner and you or a member of your household receives one of the qualifying benefits. The government will cover 100% of the cost of the improvements up to £10,000.

How do I apply?

  1. Check if you’re eligible for a voucher
  2. Check what improvements may be suitable for your home
  3. Choose which improvements you would like and see an estimate of how much they may cost
  4. Find registered installers to get quotes to carry out the work
  5. Apply for your voucher

The Green Homes Grant scheme will never include official representatives coming to your property uninvited or cold calling on the phone to encourage you to join the scheme.

What improvements can I get?

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

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.

The grant for the secondary measure is capped at the value of the grant  provided for the primary measures. For example, if you receive a £400 voucher for a primary measure such as a cavity wall insulation, you will be able to receive a maximum of £400 for a secondary measure such as an energy efficient replacement door.

Primary measures

The voucher must be used to install at least 1 primary measure. This can be an insulation measure and/or a low carbon heating measure.

Insulation measures:

  • solid wall
  • under floor

  • 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
