Green homes grant scheme - access up to £5,000 towards energy-efficient home improvements
Under the Government Green Homes Grant scheme announced in July, hundreds of thousands of people will be able to access vouchers of up to £5,000 and in some cases £10,000 towards making energy-efficient improvements to their homes.
The grant scheme will cover at least two thirds of the cost that homeowners spend on energy efficiency green upgrades, while those on the lowest incomes will not have to pay anything.
