What is the Green Deal?
The Energy Act 2011 is creating a new framework of finance in order to allow for the installation of fixed energy efficiency measures to existing properties without any upfront payment by the householder or business owner.
These installations will be funded by a charge on energy bills attached to the property so that if the householder ever moves, the new owner takes on the payments.
It will operate on a 'Golden Rule' principle which means that the energy cost savings as a result of the measures will exceed the actual repayment costs.
The process will be consumer driven with the initial enquiry made by the householder or business tenant/owner. An advisor will then visit the property and carry out an in-depth assessment of the property. They will then recommend the relevant energy saving measures and put together a 'Green Deal Plan'. This will be associated with a 'Green Deal Provider'.
The applications to become a provider are currently being processed at the time of writing. Once the Green Deal Plan is agreed, the customer can then choose the installers to undertake the work. They MUST have the Green Deal Quality Mark. Our system will make it as easy as possible to attain the Mark and maintain it.
