What is the Green Homes Grant?
As part of the UK Government’s new Green Homes Grant Scheme, vouchers worth up to £10,000 will be given to homeowners and landlords to make their homes more energy efficient.
The aim of the scheme is to enable homeowners and landlords to upgrade their homes and properties with energy-saving features, such as external wall insulation, in order to reduce energy usage and improve the energy efficiency of a property.
There is just one day to go until you can apply for the Green Homes Grant (30th September 2020) for a contribution of up to £10,000 towards your home.
