As well as investing in infrastructure, we want to create green jobs. This is going to be a green recovery, with concern for our environment at its heart. As part of that, I’m announcing today a new £2 billion Green Homes Grant.
From September, homeowners and landlords, will be able to apply for vouchers to make their home more energy efficient and create local jobs. The grants will cover at least two thirds of the cost, up to £5,000 per household. For low income households, we will go even further, with vouchers covering the full cost, up to £10,000.
