The Energy Saver Cashback offer has been prompted by the increasing number of over-55s adopting environmentally-friendly lifestyle changes, and Legal & General’s desire to support its customers’ climate-conscious aims.

The offer (which coincides with the government’s £2bn Green Homes Grant** scheme), is now open for applications. The Energy Saver Cashback offer includes a wide range of energy efficient home improvements, which can be viewed here, and is available across England, Scotland and Wales.

Improvements covered include double glazing, insulation, ground source or air source heat pumps, solar panels and heating controls. All home improvements on the Legal & General list qualify for the offer, but they do need to be carried out by an approved tradesperson with TrustMark registration.* To help explain how this offer can be used, Legal & General will be hosting a Q&A webinar for advisers at 11am on November 4. Details are available on the ‘Adviser Academy’ portal.

Claire Singleton, CEO of Legal & General Home Finance: "At Legal & General, we believe that taking action to counteract climate change is vitally important, and we are committed to supporting our customers to do this too.

Residential housing is currently the third-largest contributor to CO2 emissions, and as two-thirds of the UK’s housing stock falls below the C grade on Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), we need to focus on making our existing stock more efficient.

Just a few improvements can make a massive difference to the environment, the bills we pay and a property’s market value. Installing an air source heat pump, for example, could cut a home’s CO2 emissions by 2600 kg per year, saving close to £700 in the process. Even basic changes, such as double glazing and draught proofing, can save hundreds of pounds a year. We want to support our customers who are taking action to reduce their emissions and leave a positive legacy for future generations."
