Green Deal Home Improvement Fund
On the 23rd July 2015, DECC (the Department of Energy and Climate Change) announced it was ending funding for the Green Deal scheme. No more applications are being considered at this time. Government ECO Grants and RHI applications are still being accepted.
The Green Deal Cash-back Scheme enable UK households to reclaim a portion of investments made in energy saving measures taken like double glazing or draught proofing.
From June 2014 the Green Deal has been revamped and households can now claim back up to £7,600 towards the cost of making their homes more energy efficient.
UK households can now claim up to £1,000 cash-back for the installation of two energy efficient measures, £6,000 for the installation of solid wall insulation and £100 towards the cost of assessment. There is an additional £500 available for people who have purchased their home in the past year, regardless of age.
It is not necessary to take out a Green Deal Loan to qualify for these incentives but the work must be recommended by a Green Deal assessor and carried out by a registered Green Deal provider.
