If you don’t have any insulation, you’re probably losing about 26% of your heat through the roof and around 33% through the walls.
Green Homes Cashback Scheme
What’s on offer?
The Green Homes Cashback Scheme is funded by the Scottish Government to offer you cash back on home improvements which increase energy efficiency. Whether your home needs double-glazing, floor insulation or wastewater heat recovery, you can receive cash back of up to £1200, as long as the measures are recommended in a Green Deal assessment.
Who can apply?
The scheme is open to anyone in Scotland, whether you own or rent your home, and there are certain qualifying requirements to meet, such as:
- The efficiency measures must be recommended by a Green Deal assessment.
- You must get a new EPC for your property once the measure(s) have been fitted.
- Work on the installation must not have started before the date on which the rebate voucher is issued.
- For more eligibility requirements or to see what measures are eligible please visit the website of our partner, the Energy Saving Trust for more information.
When will I receive the cash back?
Your cashback voucher will be sent via e-mail or post, whichever you prefer. Then, you can pay your installer for the work and arrange for a new EPC to be completed on your property.
All you need to do is send the completed cash back voucher and send back receipted invoices. If these are satisfactory, the payment will be made directly into your account within 25 days!
How do I apply?
To apply for the cash back, simply complete the Home Energy Scotland contact form for a call back, or call us directly on 0808 808 2282. Our energy advisors will talk you through what’s on offer, check if it’s right for you and let you know the next steps. Or go to the Energy Saving Trust to apply online.
You will need to arrange for a Green Deal Assessment to be completed for your property and decide on what measures you want for your home to make it more energy efficient.
