I have received the following information from Sustainable Energy Ireland re changes to the grant payments under the Better Energy Homes Scheme:
“I am delighted to tell you that on 10th March we are increased the grant levels available to homeowners under the Better Energy Homes scheme. These changes are designed to encourage wider participation in the scheme.
Key changes are: Significantly higher grant amounts for all energy efficiency measures. There is no minimum grant level for first time applicants, A new bonus of e300 is payable after the third energy efficiency measure and e100 after the fourth ,Previous applicants can apply for additional measures and relevant bonus grants.
The changes apply to: All valid applications not yet paid at 10th March 201, New applications received from 10th March 2015 onwards.
We expect that growing consumer confidence and these scheme changes will result in more retrofit activity for contractors and higher grant applications. We encourage you to tell current and prospective customers about the new Better Energy Homes grant opportunities. You’ll find more information in the new Better Energy Homes brochure and Frequently Asked Questions or by calling 1850 927 000″
