For funds borrowed to install energy efficiency measures or renewable energy systems: C-Change energy improvements discount

The C-Change energy improvement scheme offers a discount of 1% on funds borrowed for qualifying energy measure installations (listed in the table below) and is applied once work is completed and evidenced by invoices. Please note the discount is applied to funds borrowed for energy improvement measures only and our Standard Variable Mortgage Rate will apply to the rest of the mortgage.

For example, if you borrow £150,000 and £50,000 is used for energy improvements, once all work is completed and evidenced, we would apply a 1% discount from our Standard Variable Rate to the £50,000 used for energy improvements and our Standard Variable Rate would apply to the rest of the mortgage.
