This organisation will allow you to apply for the government Green Homes Grant which is worth up to £10,000.00 for improving the energy performance of your home. The grant is to be paid in the form of vouchers which can only be spent with tradespeople who are accredited with Trustmark (https://www.trustmark.org.uk/).
As this scheme is due to be launched by the end of September 2020 the exact procedure for application for the funding, verification and allocation of this is yet to be finalised.
At EPEC Ltd we have a high amount of confidence that part of the process will involve a retrofit energy assessment. As the scheme aims to initially help out 600,000 UK households we are pleased to have the capacity in-house to assist with the anticipated high volume of assessments that are likely to be needed to meet this demand.
Our trained and accredited energy consultants have many years’ experience working with individuals, helping to reduce their energy bills and helping the environment at the same time.
