Green Homes Grant for a Tradesperson

How will the scheme work?

Customers can enter their information into the Simple Energy Advice’s (SEA) website, where they can check their eligibility and understand what options are available.
They’ll be able to add desired improvements to their plan, which they will then use to contact registered installers from the TrustMark and MCS lists for quotes.
The application process is now open, where customers will be able to apply using the quotes they’ve obtained. 
 

Who needs to register?

If you are a business or tradesperson who carries out energy efficiency and/or low carbon heating home improvements, you will need to register with TrustMark.

  • Once registered, you will appear on the SEA's list of certified installers. 

  • You will then need to register your company with the administrator of the scheme to enable you to receive payment from the Government. 

  • As part of the administration process with the administrator, you’ll be given the terms and conditions of the voucher scheme, which you will need to sign up to.

  • The vouchers will have the name of the business or tradesperson that the homeowner has chosen to carry out the home improvements.

  • Once the work has been completed and the voucher has been redeemed, the Government will pay the cost covered by the voucher. The cost will cover labour, materials and VAT.

More information will become available from the Government in the coming weeks.

What are the primary and secondary measures? 

The types of installations are split into ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ categories.

Homeowners will need to choose at least one of the primary measures to be able to qualify for funding of any secondary measures. The secondary measure will be capped up to the subsidy value of the primary measure, e.g. if a household receives £1,000 for primary measures, they’ll receive a maximum of £1,000 towards the secondary.

Insulation: 

  • solid wall, cavity wall, under-floor, loft, flat roof, room in roof, and park home insulation.

Low carbon heat:
