The government is set to launch the second phase of the Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme, which could help homeowners get cheap energy from green sources.
A total of £25 million will be allocated to the programme, which offers individuals vouchers for the installation of technologies such as solar thermal panels, biomass boilers and air and ground source heat pumps.
Climate change minister Greg Barker said the new scheme will be "bigger and better" than the previous version.
The scheme will be administered by the Energy Saving Trust and director of delivery at the organisation Karen Lawrence said: "Our aim is to empower householders by giving them the right tools and advice to help them reduce both their energy usage and bills."
It will include £7 million for household vouchers, £8 million for community-based projects and around £10 million to be allocated to social housing schemes, with registrations open from next month.
Recently, it was noted by Gordon Miller, co-founder of Sustain Worldwide, that the government may face an "uphill struggle" to convince people of the benefits of going green.
