The Green Homes Grant

Although ground source heat pumps are eligible for the Green Homes Grant, current terms and conditions restrict their installation. Regrettably, Kensa cannot satisfy any Green Homes Grant applications or enquiries at this stage. You can, however, ask any questions here via gov.uk.

What is the Green Homes Grant?

The Green Homes Grant scheme supports energy efficiency measures in existing homes across England. Now running until 31st March 2022, the scheme provides vouchers for up to two-thirds of home improvement costs, up to a maximum of £5,000. Low-income households may be eligible for a voucher of up to £10,000 to cover 100% of the costs.

Why isn't Kensa accepting Green Homes Grant applications?

The current Green Homes Grant rules restrict who can install a heat pump – so much so that we are unaware of any installer that can comply with all rules. Although ground source heat pumps are eligible, this effectively makes them ineligible and means that Kensa is unable to process any Green Homes Grant applications at this time.

We are working with BEIS to rectify the situation. In the meantime, please make an enquiry here if you have any questions about the grant.

The good news is that an alternative heat pump fund, the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), offers a greater income over seven years.
