The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) - Third Release of Funds Announced

The GDHIF as finally announced its long- awaited 3rd release of funds. The fund, which has been in operation since Summer 2014, has already issued 25,000 vouchers to households to help homeowners improve the energy efficiency of their homes. This has, in turn, helped to reduce energy consumption and lower bills.

Companies such as Th!nk Energy who are Green Deal approved installers are proud to have played their part by helping to promote and implement this scheme. The terms and conditions of the scheme have been strengthened for this latest release to further protect consumers.

From 12 noon on Monday 16th March up to £70 million in vouchers will become available. There will be up to £5,600 available to help with the cost of installing solid wall insulation, double glazing, boilers and cavity wall and floor insulation. Domestic customers can claim up to £3,750 towards the cost of solid wall insulation and up to £1,250 for two measures from the approved list which can be found on the government's website. Up to £100 can be refunded for the Green Deal Assessment (this is required to establish if you can claim). This will only be paid if the improvements are accepted and this assessment has to be done by an approved Green Deal Assessor. It must be noted that owners or occupiers in England and Wales can apply as can landlords. Tenants (in social or private housing) can also apply provided they can prove that they are paying for the improvements. However managing agents of properties are not eligible to apply.

Please note that this scheme has seen a very strong uptake in the past and once the £70 million has been allocated the offer will automatically close. Don't delay- contact Th!nk Energy if you feel that you may be able to benefit from this scheme. We are an accredited Green Deal company and we will be happy to help you through the application process.
