Half of UK homeowners to apply for goverment's Green Energy Grant

More than half of UK homeowners are planning to apply for the government’s new Green Energy Grant, research suggests.The grant, which was announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak in July’s budget and will be available from September, will cover at least two thirds of the cost of energy-saving home improvements. The average UK household can apply for up to £5,000 ($6,396), while the poorest households can claim as much as £10,000. So far, 51% of homeowners are planning to apply for the scheme, while another 26% are seriously considering it, according to a MoneySuperMarket survey of 2,000 people. The scheme could save Brits up to £300 a year on bills, Sunak said in his announcement speech. It is part of a wider “green” recovery plan that will also see £1bn go towards making public buildings, such as schools and hospitals, more energy-efficient. “There are several measures households can undertake to make their homes more energy efficient — from loft, wall and floor insulation, to adding double-glazed windows, among other things,” said Stephen Murray, energy expert at MoneySuperMarket.
