Green Homes Grant

Mon 21 September, 7:00 – 8:00pm

This was a lively event with 62 appreciative participants. Here are the slides and a video.

The upcoming government Green Homes Grant offers homeowners and landlords grants of up to £5,000, covering two-thirds of the cost of many home energy improvements.


This free online talk will give the latest information and advice on the eligible measures:
Insulation: Solid wall, cavity wall, under-floor, loft, flat roof, room in roof, park home
Low carbon heat: Air source & ground source heat pumps, solar thermal
And these ‘secondary measures’:
Draught proofing
Windows and doors: most double/triple glazing, secondary glazing and energy efficient doors
Heating controls and insulation of several kinds

You should be able to apply from late September, but the scheme closes at the end of March. So you need quick, careful action to plan what you want, preferably with a whole house plan, and to choose a registered installer, of whom there are far too few. 

Tom Bragg, Open Eco Homes Manager, and Peter Bates, a home energy expert, will explain and discuss what can be funded, making a plan and the steps of applying for a grant, which could help you make significant home energy improvements. 

62 people came to this talk and asked lots of good questions. See the Slides and Video.
