Homeowners are being encouraged by the government to apply for a Green Homes Grant that will allow for up to £10,000 worth of vouchers to make energy-related improvements that will contribute towards the UK’s carbon footprint and lower the cost of residents’ energy bills by introducing low carbon heating, upgrading single or double glazing, improving home insulation, installing hot water tank and appliance tank thermostats.
The Green Homes Grant will also generate a lot of work for many builders, plumbers, electricians and trades people across England and Wales. In order to get involved, tradespeople must sign up and get TrustMark accredited so they can offer their services when homeowners get their funding approved and the energy efficient improvements can begin on their homes.
Getting accredited with TrustMark can take as little as five working days for those who are members of a recognised trade body. To install low carbon heat measures, tradespeople must also be certified through the Microgeneration Certification Scheme for the relevant heating technology.
The Government is urging tradesmen to become eligible to work under the Grant, not only because it will generate further work for them, but because they’ll be suited to work in further energy-efficient projects in the future.
