The £70 million pot available through the third release of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) has been fully allocated, the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has confirmed.
The third release of the scheme was made available on Monday 16th March, allowing homeowners in England and Wales to apply for funding of up to £5,600 to install energy saving measures such as solid wall insulation, double glazing, boilers, cavity wall and floor insulation.
An additional £5 million, remaining from release two of GDHIF, is being made available immediately so householders can continue to apply for funding to make energy saving home improvements such as cavity wall insulation, double or triple glazing, and fitting efficient boilers.
Ed Davey, Energy and Climate Change secretary, said: “The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is extremely popular, and the third release has proved no exception. Thanks to this scheme some of the country’s leakiest homes will be warmer and cheaper to heat – permanently.
“We know the best way to help people use less energy and drive down their bills is to make their homes more energy efficient, and through ECO and Green Deal we’ve improved over one million homes across the country.”
