In the mini budget today:

Homeowners can benefit from £2bn of grants to pay for “green” upgrades to make their houses more energy efficient. Vouchers worth up to £5,000 will be issued while poorer households could get up to £10,000 to make the upgrades, such as loft and wall insulation. It will provide at least £2 for every £1 homeowners spend on making their properties more energy efficient and the Treasury expects the measure to support more than 100,000 green jobs.

I read somewhere this includes heat pumps but does anyone have the detail on this? How about ASHPs, solar panels and batteries - are they included? 

Can we keep the focus on what’s covered, please, rather than making political points.

    If true, I would be interested as getting an air source heat pump using the RHI wold not be worth it for us.

    Is it a political point to say to look to various party donors to see whats likely to be on offer? ;-)

    I'm about to start an extension and am having new and replacement double glazing and hoping to get underfloor heating to partially replace my existing heating system, wonder if I can get a £5k contribution?
