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 – (loft or cavity wall insulation)
  • Heating
  • Draught-proofing
  • Double glazing
  • Renewable energy technologies – (solar panels or wind turbines)

Steps to Take

  1. Get an assessment of your property to see what improvements you can make and how much you could save on your energy bills.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Once the work is done, you’ll pay off the money in instalments through your electricity bill. MAIN-infographic2
