Green Living Grant Scheme
As signalled in the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture’s 2023 Department Plan, a new low carbon heating scheme for residents will launch in 2024, and will replace the GLGS. A phased closure of the scheme has commenced - more information can be found below.
The Energy Efficiency Scheme launched in 2022 and provides simple but effective efficiency measures free to eligible households.
The Green Living Grant Scheme has been created to assist Island residents with the reduction of carbon emissions and household energy bills, and provides a financial contribution of up to a maximum of £5,725 per property, to help make residential properties more energy efficient.
The Scheme operates in two parts, the first provides a Manx Home Energy Audit, and the second provides funding of up towards the cost of energy saving solutions identified by the Manx Energy Home Audit.
Financial support of 75% is available for recommended works with a value of less than £1,000, and 50% for recommended works with a value over £1,000.
The Scheme is administered by the Department for Enterprise and is part of the Isle of Man Government’s commitment to reach net zero by 2050. The need to incentivise people to retrofit such items forms part of the Government’s action plan to reach this target.
It is expected that the Scheme could significantly lower emissions in around 2,000 properties and save nearly 170,000 tonnes of CO2 entering the atmosphere - the equivalent to taking over 2,500 cars off the road over the next 30 years.
The Scheme can support a wide range of works; however only eligible works stated on the Manx Home Energy Audit may be eligible for grant funding. Details of eligible works, and the Manx Home Energy Audit, can e found below.
Successful applicants will be informed via email and will be placed on a waiting list until a domestic energy assessor is available.
