Green Homes Grant – installers given extension to use PAS 2030:2017 standard
Elmhurst has just learnt that BEIS has extended the use of PAS 2030:2017 for installers involved in the Green Homes Grant Scheme until 31st October 2021.
This decision does not impact ECO or any other Government funded policy. It is simply an allowance to allow installers who will have quoted for work based on installing the measures under PAS 2030:2017 standard to continue to do so, as there have been many delays to the voucher scheme.
Simon Flint – Elmhurst Retrofit Team: “Whilst any delays on changes to new standards are never welcome, this particular one is understandable as installers who were encouraged to get involved in Green Homes Grant Vouchers and LAD processes last autumn have often found it time consuming and slow through no fault of their own. The extension simply allows the measures to be installed as quoted for. The good news is the transition toward the new PAS 2035 and PAS 2030:2019 standards for ECO and other government policies stand, and we look forward to a whole home approach to retrofit in UK homes moving forward.”
BEIS will issue further information soon, and we will keep you posted.
