The Government has announced the third round of its Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF), with £70m being made available to help homeowners in England and Wales install energy-saving measures, writes Edie.net.
Individual households can apply for up to £5,600 from this newest release of funding from midday on 16 March. Domestic energy customers are able to receive up to £3750 for installing solid wall insulation – £250 less than was being offered in the last round of funding in December. But the money allocated for the deal’s two measures offer has been increased by an equivalent amount.
Homeowners can also apply for up to £1250, to install two measures from a list of approved measures including double glazing, boilers, cavity wall and floor insulation. Applicants can still receive up to £100 refunded for their Green Deal Assessment as required for funding approval, or up to £500 more if within 12 months of buying a new home.
