Sustainability Series: Green Deal Update

In a bold move designed to breathe new life into the scheme, a new package of measures known as the ‘Green Deal Home Improvement Fund’ has been unveiled.

As of the 9th June 2014, £500 payments are now being offered to anyone who installs energy-efficiency measures within 12 months of moving into their property. What’s more, homeowners will be able to apply for a further £1,000 cash back, which will be available to all, irrespective of when they moved in, if they fit any combination of two improvements from a list of 12. This includes double-glazing, cavity wall insulation, replacement doors or flat roof insulation and many other energy saving solutions.

Those in older homes who undertake solid wall insulation measures may also be able to claim 75% of the cost, up to a maximum of £6,000!
