Has anyone applied for this? Green Homes Grant - Greater Manchester Combined Authority
I expressed interest a couple of days ago and someone from EON rang me today to see if I was eligible. The main criteria are an income of less than £30k and a property rating of E, F or G. A surveyor will visit my house at some point, although they didnt have any appointments available in my area right now.
I am part way through my retrofit journey which has been going on for over 10 years on a house that had an EPC rating of F when i moved in. As that was done over 10 years ago, the surveyor sent by EON will do another EPC. The very gradual improvements I have made will have (hopefully) pushed up the energy rating so I may end up being disqualified from applying for the grant. This is really frustrating because I have just had some work done which has put me into debt and it will be a long time before I can save up enough to get EWI installed and £10k towards it would help massively. The scheme is backed by BEIS, GMCA and being administered by EON.
So it’s worth looking at if you think you might be eligible. I’ll keep you posted on what happens with my application …
