How to finance your green building project

Let’s talk about money

Are you wondering where the money will come from to pay for everything you want to do on your house?

You may know that eco renovations will be worth it in the long run, but finding money right now may be proving difficult.

From many years’ experience, we know that financing a green building project is a hurdle that everyone faces, but it’s actually easier than you think.

Think about the future savings

Eco builds don’t have to be more expensive than standard builds.

In fact, a  well-designed eco building or renovation uses less energy and fewer resources than a standard build, making them much cheaper to run and more comfortable to use.

By using the right technologies, you can significantly minimise the long-term running costs of your home and insulate yourself from rising fuel bills.

How to pay for work on your home

There are lots of ways to pay for the work on your home.

These range from using savings or borrowing money to the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO). The Green Deal is a way to install measures by paying for them through the savings on energy bills.

Mixing financial options together is known as ‘blended finance.’

We can help you work out the best way to pay for your green building project, even helping you apply for grants and subsidies.

Financial incentives for green building projects

There are financial incentives in place for renewable energy that is generated in your home.

The income from these can be considered a ‘return’ on your investment and can ‘pay back’ the upfront cost over a period of time.

Financial incentives include:

  • Feed In Tariff for electricity generated by solar panels, wind turbines and micro hydro
  • Renewable Heat Incentive for heat generated by solar thermal panels, biomass (wood) and ground and air source heat pumps
