Green Deal home improvement fund – guide for consumers (June 2014)

FundingDECC published a short guide for consumers on the Green Deal home improvement fund on 9 June 2014.

The publication follows the guidance published on 2 May 2014 which explained how the Fund works, highlighting the following:

To be eligible for the scheme, householders must satisfy the following incentive criteria:

  • Customers must apply for the voucher before the work starts
  • Measures must be recommended in an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) or GDAR carried out in the last 24 months
  • The GDHIF can work with Green Deal Finance which could be used to help to pay for some of the costs of installation
  • Customers will not be eligible for the GDHIF incentive if they receive ECO or other central Government funding, on the energy saving improvements applied for under GDHIF
