As seen on the Guardian Green Deal Home Improvement Fund

Green Deal home improvement fund details announced £5600 Cashback

Rhodri Andrews

More people will get help to improve the energy efficiency of their homes through a new release of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF).

Up to £30 million in vouchers will be available and details of further releases will be announced on a quarterly basis with the next release expected in February 2015. This is part of the additional £100 million for household energy efficiency measures announced in October 2014 which is in addition to the £450 million already allocated to household energy efficiency over 2014 – 17.

The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund’s £30 million will be ring-fenced into two categories:

Up to £24 million for solid wall insulation;
Up to £6 million for two measures from a list of home improvements available under the scheme.

Through this second release of funding, domestic energy customers can now receive:
up to £4000 for installing solid wall insulation;
up to £1000 for installing two measures from an approved list;
up to £100 refunded for their Green Deal Assessment;
up to £500 more if applying within 12 months of buying a new home.

The funding follows an initial £120m pot of cash that was given away in the summer, when home owners were offered up to £7,600 each. The fund proved so popular it was exhausted and forced to close early after just six weeks.

Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said:

“The best way people can cut their energy bills, this winter and every winter, is to improve their homes so that they leak less heat and use less energy. That’s why we’ve increased the funding available for the Green Deal to help even more people start saving money sooner.”

To complete the two-stage application process, householders will need:

  • A Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR) or Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that is less than two years old
  • A quote from a GDHIF registered installer or provider for work specified on the GDAR or EPC and included on the list of GDHIF approved measures
  • Proof of property ownership (for landlords/undertakings only)
    Householders are encouraged to get more than one quote, particularly when they are having expensive work done, to make sure they are getting the best deal available.

If you want to make your home more energy efficient give Tempo a call or request a call back via the website to find out how you can take advantage of the Green Deal Home Improvement cash back scheme and to book your Green Deal Assessment Report.
