£2.61 million issued during first week of new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund scheme
Households were issued more than £2.6 million during the first week of the new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund scheme, the DECC (Department of Energy & Climate Change) has revealed in a recent statement.
1,736 applications were made for the fund which offers households in England and Wales up to £7600 cash back for making energy efficient home improvements.
Under the new incentive scheme domestic energy customers can get up to £1000 for installing two measures from an approved list and/or up to £6000 for installing solid wall insulation and up to £100 refunded for their Green Deal Assessment.
The scheme also entitles those who have bought a property in the 12 months prior to application to qualify for up to an additional £500 if they carry out energy efficiency improvements.
Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said:
“We’ve changed the Green Deal to make it simpler and faster for people to make their homes more energy efficient – you could get up to £7600 back, straight into your bank account.
“I want as many people as possible to benefit from this unmissable offer. It won’t be around forever, so sign up now and get your home ready for the winter.”
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
