You can make energy-saving improvements to your home or business without having to pay all the costs up front through the Green Deal.
Energy-saving improvements include:
insulation - eg loft or cavity wall insulation
renewable energy technologies - eg solar panels or wind turbines.
What you need to do
Get an assessment of your property to see what improvements you can make and how much you could save on your energy bills.
Choose a Green Deal provider to carry out the work. You discuss with them what work you want done and whether the Green Deal is right for you.
If you go ahead with the improvements you must sign your Green Deal Plan - this is a contract between you and the provider stating what work will be done and how much it will cost. The provider will then arrange for a Green Deal installer to do the work.
Once the work is done, you’ll pay off the money in instalments through your electricity bill.
If you’re a landlord, you must get your tenant’s permission before you sign up, and if you’re a tenant you must get your landlord’s permission to sign up - this also applies to social housing.
Green Deal mark
All Green Deal organisations must be authorised - look for the quality mark.
You may have to pay for an assessment - you should check with the assessor or provider before the appointment.
During the assessment
An assessor will come and inspect your property, and discuss your energy use.
Contact a Green Deal provider to discuss what work is right for you.
