The New Home Insulation Grant Scheme
The Government Home Insulation Grant Scheme has changed again (17/9/18).
In some ways it is an improvement over the old scheme, but other aspects have got a whole lot worse.
The Standard Home Insulation Grant that everyone qualified for (even Richard Branson) has been withdrawn.
The Enhanced Home Insulation Grant – which you have to qualify for, has been broadened. Many people who did not qualify for this grant in the past will now qualify.
CAVITY WALL INSULATION
Cavity Wall Insulation is FREE in 99% of the cases. The quality control aspects have improved massively.
Loft Insulation is in virtually all cases free. To get all the facts and figures

THE GREEN DEAL - AN UPDATE!
The Green Deal was actually a finance mechanism, whereby energy efficiency improvements could be made to your home, through a loan, which was then repaid, with interest, through your electricity bill.
The idea was that Energy companies, DIY companies and the like, would invest money into the "Green Deal Finance Company" - but it didn't happen, and the Coalition Government funded it.
When the Conservatives came to power in May 2015 (without the Lib Dems), they said that they would not invest anymore money into the scheme. So, The Green Deal still existed, but in practice was unable to operate.
In January 2017 The Green Deal Finance Company was purchased by a private consortium, and it is offering Green Deal Loans through the scheme, but to a very limited extent. We will keep you updated on how this progresses.
