This page will constantly be updated with information on the Green Deal with answers to questions like:
What is the Green Deal? What will it mean for a company like Eco Installer? What will it offer for me?
Here is the description from the DECC website:
“The Energy Act 2011 includes provisions for the new ‘Green Deal’, which intends to reduce carbon emissions cost effectively by revolutionising the energy efficiency of British properties.
The new innovative Green Deal financial mechanism eliminates the need to pay upfront for energy efficiency measures and instead provides reassurances that the cost of the measures should be covered by savings on the electricity bill.
A new Energy Company Obligation will integrate with the Green Deal, allowing supplier subsidy and Green Deal Finance to come together into one seamless offer to the consumer.”
The Government is proposing three new roles under the Green Deal; Advisors, Installers and Providers.
At Eco Installer we are aiming at becoming a Green Deal Provider and have applied to assist with early testing of the Green Deal Framework.
