Green Homes Grant | CCAN Zoom 18.08.20



On our last community Zoom (Tuesday 18th), we discussed the new Green Homes Grant scheme (GHG).

GHG is new government voucher scheme in England, worth about £2 billion, that will enable households to increase the energy efficiency of their homes. Vouchers up to £5,000 will be available to households provided they make a minimum contribution of 33% of the cost of upgrades. Low income households will be able to apply for vouchers of up to £10,000 with no household contribution required. Funding (£500 million of the £2 billion) will also be available to Local Authorities in England to support the upgrade of homes for low income households in their areas. See Green Home Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme

Please find below a PDF of the slides used during the Zoom (brief summary of GHG) and a summary of what was discussed.

After the Zoom, Chris Ring (Transition Belper)  kindly shared a copy of the letter he wrote to Kwasi Kwarteng, Minister for Business Energy and Clean Growth, urging publication of, and action on, the findings of the recent consultation on new building standards. 

Please feel free to circulate.
