The Green Deal was launched enabling you to make energy-saving improvements to your property or business without having to pay all the costs up front. The ideal is simple; to install new green technology into your home or business. You have the benefit of paying back the costs through your energy bill over a period of time.
The energy-saving improvements include:
- Insulation, for example loft or cavity wall insulation
- Heating, including central heating boiler
- Renewable energy technologies, for example solar panels or wind turbines
What do I need to do?
First your need to get an assessment of your property, this is to assess what improvements can be made and how much you could save on your energy bills
You will need to then choose a Green Deal provider to carry out to work. You will discuss with them what work you want done.
If you decide to go ahead, you must sign your Green Deal Plan. This is a contract between you and your provider, it will stat what work will be done and how much it will cost.
Once the work has been competed, you’ll pay off the money through your electricity bill.
