Apply for a Green Homes Grants and save on energy bills

Homeowners in England, including landlords, can get up to £5,000 to cover up to two-thirds of the cost of energy saving measures including insulation or installing a low carbon heating system. Low income households can get 100% of the costs of work covered up to £10,000.

 

To check whether you’re eligible and for a more detailed list of what improvements are covered go to:  https://www.gov.uk/check-eligible-green-homes-grant

 

Businesses that are appropriately certified to install energy efficiency and/or low carbon heating improvements in homes need to register with TrustMark to carry out work under the scheme. This confirms to homeowners that you will install measures to high standards. You will be added to a directory of TrustMark registered installers and homeowners can then contact you to obtain a quote.

 

Businesses that install low carbon heating improvements in homes will also need to be MCS certified. Once you are registered with TrustMark, you need to apply to become a Green Homes Grant installer in order to carry out the work.
