Claim £130 cashback with the Green Deal Cashback Scheme

Under the new Green Deal Cashback Scheme, households could be eligible to claim £130 cashback when replacing boilers with high efficiency oil fired condensing ones. The government has set aside up to £40 million for this scheme. The aim is to offer more cashback with every home energy improvement.

The government is hoping that the scheme will influence homes to improve their energy efficiency not only by upgrading their heating systems, but also by improving their insulations, front doors and windows. The Green Deal Cashback Scheme will be made available to households in England and Wales from January 28th 2013.

Qualification

Both owner occupiers and landlords are eligible for the scheme. To qualify for the cashback under the Green Deal Scheme, households must:

  • Undertake a Green Deal assessment – this can be done at any time before the scheme is made available
  • Arrange for the work to be done through Green Deal providers who have registered  with the scheme
  • Pay part of the installation cost

OFTEC is currently offering installers Green Deal registration to allow them to take advantage of the new scheme.

Registered providers can encourage customers to get Green Deal assessments early. This will allow customers to get approval for their Cashback voucher as soon as the scheme opens and before work commences.

Cashback

The Green Deal Cashback Scheme is a first-come, first-served offer and is limited while funds last. Packages could be worth up to £1000, with £100 cashback offered for loft insulations, £250 for cavity wall insulations and £390 for flat roof insulation. As the scheme is a limited offer, once the £40 million funding has been used, cashback rates could decrease. Up to £125 million has been assigned to the whole scheme.

According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) “householders can choose to donate some or all of their cashback to a registered charity or community interest company signed up with the scheme.”
