Could your business become a Green Homes Grant installer?

The Green Homes Grant scheme allows homeowners and residential landlords to apply for a voucher towards the cost of installing energy efficient improvements to their home.

 

Vouchers will cover two-thirds of the cost of eligible improvements, up to a maximum government contribution of £5,000 or £10,000 if the household is on low income.

 

To carry out work under the scheme, all tradespeople and businesses will need to be certified to install energy efficiency measures and register to take part in the scheme.

 

Eligibility

If you install energy efficiency measures, you must be certified to install measures against Publicly Available Specification (PAS) standards:

  • PAS 2030:2017
  • PAS 2030:2019
  • PAS 2035:2019 (for park homes, high rise buildings and buildings that are both traditionally constructed and protected)

 

You must be certified by a body that has been accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

 

If you install low carbon heat measures such as heat pumps, you need to be certified with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

 

Only TrustMark-registered businesses can register to be a Green Homes Grant installer.
