£7,600 Green Deal cashback incentive

green dealHouseholds carrying out energy efficiency improvements on their home can now get more money back to offset the cost of having the work done.
 
From June, people in England and Wales will be able to get up to £7,600 back through a new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund so they can take control of their bills and have warmer, greener homes.
 
The scheme helps people to install energy efficiency measures such as solid wall insulation or energy efficient windows by providing them with money back on the contributions they make towards improvements.
 
Green Deal installers and providers have been urged to register with the scheme now.
 
Energy and Climate Change Secretary, Ed Davey, said: “The best way for households to take control of their energy bills is to use less energy.
 
“Faulty boilers, draughty windows and insufficient insulation all cause properties to leak hundreds of pounds every year. But advice and support through the Green Deal can help put a stop to this.

,”By installing energy saving improvements, families across the country can enjoy the benefits of warmer, more energy efficient homes and lower bills.”

Climate Change Minister, Greg Barker, said: “The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is another way the government is making it simpler and cheaper for people to stay warm and improve their homes.

,”I want households across the country to benefit from more energy efficient homes and reduced bills through the Green Deal, and that is what the new home incentive fund will do.”

 
The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund also applies to private or social landlords, who can benefit if they undertake to improve the property and are paying the costs themselves.
