Later this month, under the Green Homes Grant scheme, homeowners in England can apply for vouchers worth up to two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy efficiency of their home – the maximum contribution will be £5,000, or for those on lower incomes, a 100% grant up to £10,000 will be available for certain work.
The vouchers, which will be issued from the end of September, will not only cut energy bills and potentially save families hundreds of pounds a year, but will also create and protect thousands of jobs across the energy and construction industries as we begin to recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
A statement from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), said consumers would be able to use a TrustMark Registered Business from their local area to carry out energy-efficient measures in and around their homes. They will be able to use the vouchers to install one or more of the following:
solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
air source or ground source heat pump solar thermal
In addition, households can use their voucher for further energy-saving measures. These include one or more of the following:
double or triple glazing/secondary glazing, when replacing single glazing
upgrading to energy-efficient doors
hot water tank/appliance tank thermostats/heating controls
The grant scheme is available until the end of March 2021 and applies to England only – so will not cover homes in Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland.
We need to ensure businesses are supported, and consumers can rely on the tradespeople that carry out work in and around their homes, making them fit for the future.
Consumer confidence is not only essential to the recovery of the UK’s economy, but also to the protection and creation of key jobs that will support the long-term delivery of quality improvements in and around the home.
