Green Deal Cashback

The Green Deal Cashback Scheme rewards Green Deal customers. Householders in England and Wales can claim Cashback from Government for energy saving improvements like insulation, front doors, windows and boilers. You can claim Cashback for each recommended measure you install. The more you do, the more you get.

Who is eligible?

The Cashback Scheme is open to householders making energy saving improvements under the Green Deal. This includes owner-occupiers, those renting privately or in social housing. Landlords, both private and social, are also eligible where they pay installation costs, up to certain limits.

How much could I get?

Cashback rates for some improvements have changed and the new rates will apply to any cashback application made or redeemed on or after 13 December 2013. You can see the new and old rates in the table below.

Loft insulation (including top up) and insulating cavity walls (where appropriate) are important, basic energy saving measures. So where a Green Deal assessment recommends these alongside other improvements, householders will only be able to get the Cashback if they do these too.
