How Green Deal works

You can make energy savings or improvements to your home or business
without having to pay upfront costs through the Green Deal.

Energy saving improvements include:
• insulation e.g. loft or cavity wall insulation
• heating
• draught-proofing
• double glazing
• renewable energy technologies – e.g. solar panels or wind turbines

You may also be able to claim money back from the government for your
Green Deal home improvements through the cash back incentive scheme.


What you need to do

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. Use the assessment to apply for the Cash-back scheme if you qualify.

3. 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.

4. 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.

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.
