Buying solar panels - are they worth it?

Solar is one of the world’s fastest growing renewable energy solutions and could result in savings of up to £500 a year on your electricity bills by installing solar panels and battery storage.

Adding a battery to your solar panel system allows you to store up the power you create to when and how you want, giving you more self-sufficiency from the grid and saving you more money.

As the power generated by solar panels is from a renewable and sustainable source you’ll be reducing the carbon footprint of your home and helping to create a greener tomorrow.

Also, by taking steps to making your house more energy efficient you may find that solar photovoltaic panels can provide the bulk of your electricity. In fact, having a solar package installed using our interest-free option could result in savings of  over 25 years.

How do solar panels work?

How do solar panels work?

Your solar panel system will have a number of solar PV (photovoltaic) cells which capture the sun’s energy. Direct sunlight isn’t needed for this to happen.

An inverter then converts the energy from the solar cells into electricity for your home. Your home will use this power as you generate it and you’ll import any extra you need from the grid.

If you have a battery added to your system you can store up the energy to use as and when you choose

Solar Panels - Are They Worth It?

Green Homes Grant

We are Green Homes Grant and the government is setting out further details of the range of measures included and how consumers in England will be able to claim the new vouchers, which are worth up to £5,000 for homeowners.

Households on low income can receive Green Homes Grant vouchers covering 100% of the cost of the improvements, on Benefits up to a maximum of £10,000.

What will it cost me?

If you are WORKING and NOT on BENEFITS Capped at £5,000

For example Capped at £5,000, if a homeowner of a detached, semi-detached or end-terrace installed cavity wall and floor insulation, costing around £4,000, the homeowner would pay just £1,320 – with the government paying £2,680 with the green homes grant.

Using the Green Homes Grant voucher doing so could save the owner over £200 annually on their bills and reduce their carbon footprint by cutting 700 kg of CO2 a year from their home alone

If you are ON BENEFITS Capped at £10,000

For example Capped at £10,000, if a homeowner of a detached, semi-detached or end-terrace installed cavity wall and floor insulation, costing around £4,000, the homeowner would pay just ZERO – with the government paying £4,000 with the green homes grant.

So if you are a HOMEOWNER on BENEFITS you can claim up to £10,000 on the Green Home Grants Scheme from September 2020.

Doing so could save the owner over £200 annually on their bills and reduce their carbon footprint by cutting 700 kg of CO2 a year from their home alone Apply Now! for your Green Homes Grant.

 

The £2bn Green Homes Grant was announced by Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak last month. More than 600,000 people could benefit from the government’s new proposals, which will pay at least two thirds of the cost of some energy-saving home improvements.

    Green Homes Grant F&Q

    What is the Green Homes Grant?

    The Green Homes Grant scheme, announced by chancellor Rishi Sunak in July, will provide £2bn for home improvement projects as part of a wider £3bn government plan to cut carbon emissions.

    The grants will be provided in the form of vouchers which can be used towards making specific energy-efficient improvements to homes.

    The Treasury claims that utilising these vouchers could help families make an average annual saving of £200 on their energy bills.

    Is My Home Eligible for Improvements?

    You can use the Green Homes Grant service to check which energy efficiency or low-carbon heat improvements can be made to your home.

    The site offers a quick energy survey for consumers to see how energy efficient their homes already are, and where improvements can be made. This takes as little as five minutes to complete.

    SEA will then direct households to a list of accredited tradespeople who are involved in the scheme.

    How energy-efficient your home is will depend on several things, such as when it was first built, the type of windows and insulation it has, and how it is heated.

    Energy Savings Trust Chief Executive, Mike Thornton, said: “The Green Homes Grant scheme is a great opportunity to get a grant to cut energy bills. Now the [SEA] website is live, we urge people to go online to create a personalised plan for energy efficiency in their home as a first step to getting their grant.”

    Can the Green Homes Grant be Used With the Renewable Incentive?

    Yes. The Green Homes Grant can be used in conjunction with the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), but only if you do not currently receive RHI payments for the specific installation you are applying for with the grant.

    The RHI is a government scheme which provides financial support to homeowners who install renewable heating systems, such as heat pumps, for a period of seven years.

    If you already own a heat pump covered by RHI, then you could choose to have a further renewable heat measure (such as solar thermal) under the Green Homes Grant.

    As reported by MCS, homeowners will first need to apply for a Green Homes Grant and then apply for RHI. The cost of the vouchers provided will then be taken off the value of their projected RHI payments.

    However, this cannot work the other way round: you cannot apply for RHI first before applying for the Green Homes Grant.

    Green Homes Grant Installation
    • Insulation, including solid wall, cavity wall, underfloor, loft or roof insulation.
    • Low carbon heating, such as air-source or ground-source heat pumps, or solar thermal systems, which provide renewable ways of heating your home.

    Then if, and only if, you’re installing at least one of the improvements above, you’ll also be able to use the vouchers to install the following “secondary” measures:

    • Draught-proofing
    • Double or triple glazing, or secondary glazing, but only if you currently have single glazing – it won’t cover replacement double glazing.
    • Energy efficient doors, where you’re replacing doors installed before 2002.
    • Heating controls and insulation, including appliance thermostats, hot water tank thermostats, hot water tank insulation, smart heating controls, zone controls, delayed-start thermostats and thermostatic radiator valves.You can only receive funding for these secondary improvements up to the amount of funding you’re receiving for the primary measures. So for example, if you’ve received £1,000 towards cavity wall and roof insulation, you can only receive a maximum of £1,000 towards any secondary measures, such as double glazing or thermostats.
    When Does Green Homes Grant Voucher End

    The voucher scheme for applications will end in March 2021. Companies will have a further 6 months to then install products to people who have applied within the timeframe. Our advice would be to do this asap as it is going to get very busy for approved installers.

    How much can I save?

    Depending on the measures you have installed will depend on how much you can save. All measures installed are energy saving products.

    Will I have to pay anything?

    The boosted £10,000 vouchers, where households won’t need to pay anything towards improvement costs, will be for those receiving at least one income-based or disability benefit. Only owner-occupied homes or park homes will be eligible.

    The qualifying benefits are income-based/contribution-based jobseeker’s allowance, income-based/contribution-based employment and support allowance, income support, pension ‘guarantee’ credit, working tax credit, child tax credit, universal credit, disability living allowance, personal independence payment, attendance allowance, carer’s allowance, severe disablement allowance, industrial injuries disablement benefit and housing benefit.

    For most homeowners, the vouchers will be worth about two-thirds of the cost of the energy efficient improvements, up to a maximum of £5,000 per household. For example, the Treasury says a homeowner installing cavity wall and floor insulation costing £4,000 would only pay about £1,320, with the Government contributing the remaining £2,680 through the voucher scheme.

    Will I receive a workmanship guarantee?

    Yes. The measures need to be installed by a Trustmark registered company or a company who is registered with MCS. All companies will provide workmanship guarantees.

    Am I Eligible for the Green Homes Grant?

    Green Homes Grant

    To be eligible for the Green Homes Grant all the details are below, also what work is included in the voucher scheme and how it works.

    The UK Government not us have set these guideline out.

    Available measures

    The available measures are split into “primary” and “secondary” categories.

    Households will need to install at least one of the primary measures below to qualify for funding.

    Doing so could save the owner over £200 annually on their bills and reduce their carbon footprint by cutting 700 kg of CO2 a year from their home alone.

    What is the Green Homes Grant

    The Green Homes Grant will provide homeowners with vouchers for energy efficiency improvements, in which the government will cover two-thirds of the cost.

    The Green Homes Grant was introduced in July 2020 by chancellor Rishi Sunak to help homeowners in England and Wales make their homes more energy efficient. using the Green Homes Grant.

    The announcement of the Green Homes Grant followed a fraught spring for the UK economy, which contracted by 25% amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    The Green Homes Grant was one of the major updates in the government’s Summer Statement — laying the foundations for a green recovery. Once launched, the government will pay two-thirds of energy-efficient home improvements up to £5,000.

    As well as planning to create thousands of new jobs, the government believes the scheme will help the UK meet its 2050 target of achieving net zero carbon emissions.

    Since its announcement, more information has been revealed, and there is strong support for the scheme. However, there are also concerns that the vouchers could lock in poor performance for longer.

    What is the Green Homes Grant?

    The Green Homes Grant will provide £2bn for projects such as ensuring houses are properly insulated. This is part of a wider £3bn plan to cut carbon emissions.

    The grants will be provided in the form of vouchers which can be used towards making energy-efficient improvements to homes.

    What is the Green Homes Grant?

    The Green Homes Grant will provide £2bn for projects such as ensuring houses are properly insulated. This is part of a wider £3bn plan to cut carbon emissions. The grants will be provided in the form of vouchers which can be used towards making energy-efficient improvements to homes. The Treasury claims that utilising these vouchers could save families up to £300 a year on energy bills, although it is not clear how this has been calculated. Sunak subsequently confirmed that the average annual saving will likely be in the region of £200.

    How Does the Green Homes Grant Work?

    In order to obtain a voucher, homeowners will have to make an online application detailing the energy efficiency measures they wish to carry out. These details will then forwarded to accredited local suppliers.

    Once one of the suppliers has issued a quote, and the requested work has been approved, then the government will issue the voucher towards the work.

    Who Can Apply for the Vouchers?

    Both homeowners and landlords will be eligible, according to the chancellor, but we await further details. Mr Sunak confirmed that up to 650,000 homes will be covered by the grant.

    Research in July by Moneysupermarket found that 51% of homeowners are planning to use the Green Homes Grant, while a further 26% are considering doing so.

    How Much are the Vouchers Worth?

    Under the scheme, the government will pay at least two-thirds of the cost of home improvements that save energy, up to £5,000.

    For example, if you were to have double glazed windows installed for around £2,000, then the government would contribute around £1,333 and the homeowner would pay around £666.

    The poorest households will be eligible to receive up to £10,000 towards these improvements. And these poorest homeowners will not have to contribute anything to the cost.

    What Does the Green Homes Grant Cover?

    On Tuesday 4 August, the government confirmed the Green Homes Grant will give homeowners and landlords vouchers to install:

    • Solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
    • Air source or ground source heat pumps
    • Solar thermal

    In addition, households can use the Green Home Grant vouchers for further energy-saving measures. These include one or more of the following:

    • Double or triple glazing/secondary glazing, when replacing single glazing
    • Upgrading to energy efficient doors
    • Hot water tank/appliance tank thermostats/heating controls

    Gas boilers are a notable emission from the list of home improvements which are covered by the scheme. Responding to the omission, Martyn Bridges, director of technical communication and product management at Worcester Bosch, said: “Although we support any scheme that actively tries to improve the efficiency of UK homes, the fact that upgrading boilers is not included in this grant is an oversight.”

    Only Vetted Traders Can Be Used

    There are strict accreditation rules for tradespeople involved in the scheme. Tradespeople must be from a TrustMark Registered Business, which the government says will give households confidence that improvements to their homes will be of the highest quality to workwith the household via the Green Home Grant.

    This update, announced on Tuesday 4 August, will assuage concerns from industry experts who feared that the scheme could yet exacerbate the problems facing households if the work was not undertaken correctly, and that cowboy builders could undermine the scheme.

    When Will the Green Homes Grant be Available?

    Applications for the scheme will open in early September 2020. While there is no official start date, the government has confirmed that the green homes grant will only be available until the end of March 2021.

    How Can I Claim Green Homes Grant Vouchers?

    From September, it will be possible to apply for the grant online, but you will not be able to sign up before then.

    This is important, because in the weeks following the scheme’s announcement, it was reported that scams were targeting homeowners with promises about the scheme. Some homeowners received scam calls, emails and texts telling them that they are eligible for the grants, while other scams claimed to offer specific energy-saving measures such as insulation.

    We’ll be updating this page with government announcements about accessing the grants. In the meantime, if you feel you have been targeted by a scam you can report this to Action Fraud online.
