Sudden end to LCBP Phase 1
Date: 3 Feb 2010
Today the Government suddenly announced that the £2,500 Low Carbon Building Programme Phase 1 grants for domestic customers would finish at 5pm.
We got this news at 4pm and immediately tried to contact all of our customers to let them know that they had one hour to apply online for the LCBP grant if they hadn't already done so. Thankfully quite a few of them did manage to get their grants done.
Customers signing up after the 3rd February 2010 will still be getting the Feed-In Tariff, which will still be a great deal for them in the long run and far exceed what they would have got from the grant.
Grants for public sector organisations were available in Phase 2 of the Programme but applications for that were closed in December 2009.
