Wednesday (20th September) saw the Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, made an announcement updating the country on changes to the Government policies supporting our transition to Net Zero.

Among the announcements was a change to the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). The grant values for air source and ground/water source heat pumps will all increase to £7,500 per installation.

These changes will take effect from Monday 23 October 2023. If you have already received a BUS grant, you will not be eligible for an uplift in the total amount.

If you currently have a live voucher, it remains worth the original value – £5,000 for air source heat pumps, £6,000 for ground/water source heat pumps. However, you may choose to revoke your live voucher now and re-apply for a new voucher at the higher value once the changes take effect.
