Save on your energy bills with the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme

The Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme (GHGVS) has been introduced by the Government to improve energy efficiency in domestic properties.

Among the range of primary measures included in the scheme are biomass boilers, which burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide heating and hot water to your home.

While the savings you can make on your energy bills vary depending on the heating system you are replacing, biomass boilers rank most highly as a low carbon solution.

Where a wood-fired boiler replaces a coal fired system, the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions is between 10.1 - 10.8 tonnes a year. By replacing a modern combi boiler, the reduction is still an impressive 2.6 tonnes of CO2 a year.

How much does a biomass boiler cost?

Installing an automatically fed pellet boiler will cost you between £11,000 and £17,000, which includes flue and fuel store. Manually fed log burning boilers are usually a little cheaper.

Added costs come in the form of the fuel itself. Wood pellets typically cost between £150 and £200 per tonne. With the average household requiring 11 tonnes per year, that’s an annual cost of £1,925.

Those looking to replace their old LPG heating system with a biomass boiler could save up to £980 a year. However, those with more modern condensing gas or oil boilers could see an increase in their heating bills if they switch to biomass.

The Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive will reward those opting for biomass with an annual payment of between £1,040 to £1,390 for 7 years.

Am I eligible for the Green Homes Grant?

Every household is eligible for a £5,000 voucher, which covers 2/3 of the cost of the energy-efficient improvements up to the £5,000 maximum. For example, if a biomass boiler costs £12,000 to instal, the grant would cover £5,000, leaving you to contribute £7,000.

If you’re on a low income or claim certain benefits, you could get a voucher of up to £10,000, requiring you to contribute £2,000 if using the same example.
