Irish Government grants available under better energy schemes
Interested in learning more on what grants are available from the Irish Government under the Better Energy & Home renovation scheme? We have summarised them below.
Better Energy Homes provides cash grants to homeowners towards the cost of insulation and heating upgrades. Grants are available for the following works which must be completed by a registered SEAI contractor.
Homes built before 2006 to make them more comfortable, healthier and cheaper to run. The upgrades are free to eligible homeowners in receipt of certain benefits and over 100,000 homes have benefited so far.
Through Better Energy Communities and Areas, SEAI has this year offered grants of over €13m million to more than 80 community energy projects right across the country. A further scheme will continue to run in 2014.
The Home Renovation Incentive will provide a tax credit at 13.5% of qualifying expenditure (minimum €5,000 excl. VAT, maximum €30,000 excl. VAT) on repair, renovation or improvement work carried out on a principal private residence. The works must be completed by a tax compliant contractor on the applicant’s principal private residence. The credit will be payable over two years following the year in which the work is carried out. If the works are subject to a Better Energy Homes grant payment then the applicant must deduct three times the grant value from the qualifying expenditure (note that all Better Energy grant-related expenditure can count towards meeting the €5,000 minimum threshold).
