Green Deal is a new UK government policy and Eco Installer are Green Deal approved for biomass, heat pumps and solar photovoltaic (PV) and will be adding further measures for boilers, heating controls and under-floor heating in the near future. We are not tied to any particular manufacturer and always base our recommendation according to specific requirements.
How The Green Deal Works:
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.
Energy-saving improvements include:
- Renewable energy technologies – solar panels, heat pumps and biomass boilers
- Insulation – loft or cavity wall insulation
- Double glazing
You may be able to claim money back from the government for your Green Deal home improvements through the Cashback Scheme.
What You Need To Do:
1. Have your property assessed to see what improvements can be made and how much you could save on your energy bills.
2. Choose a Green Deal provider to carry out the work and discuss with them what work you want done and whether the Green Deal is right for you.
3. Use the assessment form to apply for the Cashback Scheme if you qualify.
4. If you go ahead with the improvements you must sign your Green Deal Plan - 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.
5. Once the work is done, you’ll pay off the money in installments 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.
