The Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) has extended the cashback scheme for the Green Deal by three months, which means households have until the end of June to apply for cashback vouchers for efficiency measures, and the measures need to be installed by the end of September.
The Decc have also made more funds available for the measures, with up to £4,000 for solid wall insulation instead of just £650, loft insulation is £1,000 up from £220 and double glazing from £320 to £650.
The cash payment cap has been upped to two-thirds from half.
Climate change minister Greg Barker said: “Inefficient homes use a lot more energy than they need to, which consumers pay a high price for.
“The extension and increase to Green Deal cashback means more families will be helped to have warmer, more energy efficient homes and lower energy bills next winter.
“These changes also create more opportunities for the growing number of authorised Green Deal companies.”
