Make your home warmer and your energy bills cheaper with a Green Homes Grant. 

Homeowners in England, including landlords, can get up to £5,000 to pay part of the cost of energy saving measures like insulation. Low income households can get 100% of the costs of work covered up to £10,000. For general information about the scheme read this information.

Make sure you’re one of the 600,000 households who could save up to £600 a year on energy bills by applying today. Installing energy efficient home improvements also cuts emissions, which is better for the environment. Improvements could include insulating your home to reduce your energy use or installing low-carbon heating to lower the amount of carbon dioxide your home produces.

If you’re a tradesperson, make sure you’re eligible to carry out work under the scheme, which will support thousands of green jobs.

  5. Apply for your voucher

Tradespeople: How to register to become a Green Homes Grant installer

Tradespeople and businesses that are appropriately certified to install energy efficiency and/or low carbon heating improvements in homes need to register with TrustMark to carry out work under the scheme. This confirms to homeowners that you will install measures to high standards. 

You will be added to a directory of TrustMark registered  installers and homeowners can then contact you to obtain a quote. 

Tradespeople and businesses that install low carbon heating improvements in homes will also need to be MCS certified.

Once you are registered with TrustMark, you need to apply to become a Green Homes Grant installer so you can deliver work in the 600,000 homes that will receive vouchers.
