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.”
