    Hi Roland, unfortunately the Government has all but pulled these grants. There are a few areas of the country that do have a small amount of funding for energy saving improvements. I would suggest ringing your local council to see if there is anything available in your neck of the woods.

    Hearing that the Green Deal Home Improvement fund amounts for solid wall for phase 4 are going to reduce to just £2,500. Green Deal community funding now may be the best way to go….

    The scheme is live! Hurry up and claim your voucher before it goes – I got mine for solid wall insulation yesterday 🙂

    GDHIF has been announced to go live on 16th March at 12pm (noon).

    I wonder how many people are going to be staying up on Sunday night to try and apply for the voucher only to realise they are 12 hours early. We took a snap vote around of the office of whether 12pm was midnight or noon and it was split half and half.

    Now obviously we are a stupid lot here, but why oh why didn’t the Government make it 11am to avoid confusion!

    Phase 3 of GDHIF is going to be announced at next week (March 3rd 2015) apparently. Just had a meeting with top bod at Green Deal finance company and he confirmed this ‘off the record’! Get ready with your EPC / Green Deal report and quotes now to apply!

    Ian, I am not big fan of the Green Deal, but what I would say is that the PAS2030 is a good framework for installation companies to follow. At the end of the day it is a framework for companies out there to implement so they provide a consistent service to from start to finish. I would say any company that is afraid to go through this process shouldn’t be trading at all. It isn’t expensive and companies that are PAS2030 are no more expensive that other non-PAS2030 companies out there.

    My builder that is doing a lot of other work for me has not got PAS 2030, so do I need to use a more expensive company to install windows?

    Have heard this morning that when GDHIF goes live again in November 2014, that solid wall is either going to be £4k down from £6k or paid on a per m2 contribution.

    Hi Jonty, yes that is correct the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund of GDHIF is coming back at some point in November. We don’t yet have the full details, but we expect this will be similar to the previous scheme that will give cashback for solid wall insulation. Under the previous scheme this was a very generous £6000 – we believe the new scheme may make it slightly less generous but nevertheless very good. For more information please read this blog: http://www.thegreenage.co.uk/green-deal-home-improvement-fund-gdhif-relaunch/ and stay tuned on there for regular updates.

    Heard the GDHIF is coming back…is this true? Am tempted to go for solid wall, but does anybody on here have any experience of the previous pot of money and if it was easy to get the cashback?
