GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR RENEWABLE HEATING SYSTEMS
(Published 5 August 2011)
A new scheme run by the Energy Saving Trust offers grants of up to £1,250 for households looking to install renewable energy heating systems in their homes.
The scheme to help pay for the installation costs of systems such as air and ground source heat pumps is open for applications from 1 August until March 2012.
Mainly aimed at the 4 million homes in Great Britain that use high carbon and typically more expensive methods such as electric fires and heating oil, the scheme has been described as ‘a new era in home heating’ by Climate Change Minister Greg Barker.
People who opt for greener methods such as biomass boilers and solar panels can apply to the £15m Premium Payment fund set up to support 25,000 installations.
