The Green Deal

Energy efficiency for nothing!

The Green Deal is a new scheme being introduced by the Government in the Autumn of 2012. It will enable homeowners and landlords to upgrade the energy efficiency of their properties with no upfront financial outlay.

How will it work? You will need to employ the services of one of our Green Deal Advisors. They will conduct an assessment of your property and produce a package of energy efficient measures that would be suitable for installation in your home. As our advisors are completely independent we will ask you for a small fee for our services. But then nothing else.

The next steps? If you wish to proceed with the Green Deal package, we can put you in touch with a Green Deal Provider. They undertake all of the supply and installation of the energy efficient measures.

How is all this paid for? As part of the initial assessment of the property, the Advisor will calculate if the energy efficient measures meet 'the Golden Rule': expected savings in energy costs must be equal to or greater than the cost of the measures. A charge will be attached to your energy bill and the savings you make will go towards paying off the energy efficient measures that have been installed.
