Despite the early closure of the Green Homes Grant, Panasonic Heating & Cooling has confirmed that its Green Homes and Green Install Cashback schemes will continue to provide support for Panasonic air source heat pump installations until 30 June 2021.
Jose Alves, UK country manager commented: “Panasonic had welcomed the UK Government’s scheme to help the sector and to help reach its net zero targets. We therefore have no hesitation in continuing with both our Green Cashback schemes to help both installers and homeowners to make the switch to renewable air source heat pumps, in a bid to help homeowners to decarbonise their homes and become more energy efficient.
As the road to recovery begins, manufacturers, such as Panasonic, are stepping up to the challenge to meet the net zero emission targets by 2050. For example, Panasonic is increasing its offering of sustainable energy solutions as well as increasing online training availability for installers by offering specific and accredited training courses to help installers become more efficient and knowledgeable in correctly installing renewable air-to-water heat pumps.
Tony Lathey, air-to-water product specialist for Panasonic added: “The scheme was an upfront grant to help towards the initial cost of a heat pump, with the full potential grant available from the domestic RHI. The good news is the domestic RHI grant is still available for end users until 31st March 2022. Installing a Panasonic Aquarea Heat Pump can provide a grant of over £12,200 paid over of seven years.”
Homeowners will also still be able to claim upto £600 cashback on Panasonic Aquarea Heat Pump installations with their Green Homes Cashback scheme, plus heat pump installers will also still be eligible for £800 cashback on completion of five installs with their Green Install Cashback scheme until 30th June 2021.
Delta-EE, the specialist new energy research, has revealed that heat pump costs could fall by as much as 40% over a 10-year period.
As much as 20% of this cost reduction will largely be driven by market competition squeezing margins across the supply chain.
