The Government is urging tradespeople to sign up for TrustMark accreditation in a drive to support over 100,000 jobs through a new energy efficiency scheme.
The Green Homes Grant scheme will give over 600,000 homeowners in England up to £10,000 to cover green home improvements ranging from insulation of walls, floors and roofs, to the installation of low-carbon heating, like heat pumps or solar thermal.
The scheme is due to go live at the end of September but there are strict accreditation rules for tradespeople involved in the scheme – to ensure households have confidence that improvements to their homes will be of the highest quality.
For homeowners interested in finding out more about the scheme, it is not due to open for grant applications until late-September, but those interested in undertaking energy efficiency improvements are now able to assess the kind of work that could be delivered through the scheme via the expanded Simple Energy Advice website.
