Green Deal Home Improvement Fund

The third release of funding, worth up to £70m, will open up to new applications at midday on March 16.

Energy and climate change secretary Ed Davey said that today’s cash release means that “thousands more can benefit”.

Homeowners will be eligible to receive up to £3,750 for installing solid wall insulation, and/or up to £1,250 for installing two measures from an approved list, up to £100 refunded for their Green Deal Assessment, and up to £500 more if applying within 12 months of buying a new home.      

To complete the two-stage application process, householders will require a Green Deal Advice Report or Energy Performance Certificate that is less than two years old, a quote from a GDHIF-registered installer or provider, and proof of property ownership.

The £70m available is part of the £100m for household energy efficiency announced in October 2014. The slug of funding is in addition to the £450m allocated from 2014 – 2017.

More than 25,000 households have received a voucher for GDHIF since it launched last June, according to the Government.

Davey said: “We’re helping families keep warmer for less – driving bills down by encouraging more competition between energy suppliers and making over one million homes more energy efficient.

“Households up and down the country are reaping the benefits of a warmer home thanks to the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund. And now, with more money available, thousands more can benefit.”
