DECC have announced that the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) has been closed:
“Due to overwhelming popular demand, the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund is closed for applications with immediate effect. A surge in applications over the last two days means the allocated budget has now been reached. All applications received prior to the fund closing that satisfy the terms and conditions and meet the eligibility criteria will be honoured at the original rates. The Department of Energy and Climate Change will monitor voucher redemption rates and will consider whether to launch a further offer should funds become available.”
This means that people wishing to install energy efficiency improvements through the Green Deal are no longer able to access additional national government incentives. There are, however, a number of local schemes in Hampshire which may be able to offer help towards the costs of a variety of energy efficiency measures. Contact us to find out if you may be eligible.
