Green Homes Grant
On Wednesday, the 8th of July, chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the £2 billion Green Homes Grant scheme, in which homeowners can receive vouchers of up to £10,000 to carry out renovations to make their homes more energy-efficient.
The UK government has not yet released a list for eligibility, but improvements such as energy-efficient doors, double glazing, heat pumps, insulation, and low-energy lighting are speculated to be covered by the scheme.
From September, homeowners and landlords will be able to apply for vouchers to make their homes more energy efficient and create local jobs. The grants will cover at least two thirds of the costs, up to £5,000 per household,’ chancellor Rishi Sunak announced during the briefing.
