What is the Green Deal?
Green Deal is an innovative financing mechanism, which allows consumers to pay for energy efficiency measures with repayment instalments through bills. Under this energy efficiency programme, households can make their homes more energy efficient by installing any of the approved measures at no upfront cost. You will be able to have a range of quality-assured measures installed by qualified professionals. The main benefit of the deal is it’s the “Golden Rule” which means you will not pay more money than you can save.
Green Deal was launched in January 2013. It replaces policies such as the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and the Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP).
