Boiler Upgrade Scheme - Government Grant
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme launched in May 2022 and since then we’ve been busy making applications on our customer’s behalf for their heat pump installations. Since June, we've received pay-outs from Ofgem under the scheme, which provides between £5,000 - £6,000 towards the cost of installing an air source or ground source heat pump.
What Is The Boiler Upgrade Scheme?
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is a Government Grant created to encourage homeowners and businesses to replace their fossil fuel boilers with a low emission heating system such as air or ground source heat pump.
We Can Take Care Of The Grant Process For You
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is an installer-led scheme; this means that only those contractors registered with Ofgem under the scheme are able to apply for and redeem grant vouchers. In other words, most individuals will not be able to apply for the vouchers themselves. Fortunately, we have the capabilities and experience to take care of the application process for you.
By working with Alto Energy, we can take all of this hassle away. Our dedicated compliance team will handle the grant application and redemption on your behalf.
Here is the process for obtaining your heat pump grant.
Get in touch with our expert sales team, and we’ll produce an initial specification and quotation for your heat pump installation.
Once you’re happy that you want to proceed with a heat pump, you pay us to complete the full MCS designs for your property. If it’s a new build or major renovation project we can do this from plans, otherwise we will need to carry out a site survey to gather detailed information about your project.
After the designs are completed, we will issue a final quotation.
Once you accept the quotation, we will apply to Ofgem for your Boiler Upgrade Scheme grant once we have all the information we need.
The contract can then proceed. The payments you make to us can be the quote amount less the grant amount.
Once the project is finished, we will redeem the voucher and we are paid the grant directly by Ofgem.
