Budget 2019 and Energy Retrofit
The Government has today announced increased funding for energy efficiency measures. It estimates that the upgrade of 24,000 homes in 2020 can potentially be funded through a combination of SEAI grant schemes – The Better Homes Scheme (individual measures in private homes), The Warmer Homes scheme (low income homes) and Better Energy Communities (BEC).
SuperHomes secures funding for homeowners through the BEC scheme each year. The BEC scheme supports ‘combined measures’ and ‘deep retrofit’ approaches to energy retrofit. This is highly likely to be the only funding available for private deep retrofit projects in 2020.
Grant funding for works under this scheme can cover 35% of total costs. You can apply to have you home assessed for the SuperHomes 2020 programme, and avail of this grant funding, here.
