Green Deal is going to be a government grant of £10,000 which is to be used to upgrade properties and make them more energy-efficient.
Things such as loft and cavity wall insulation, under floor insulation and heating, energy-efficient boilers and solar panels will be included in the itinerary of improvements for which the Green Deal can be used.
The government will recover these costs by increasing energy tax from £80 PA to £400 PA. The loan is taken out on the property so in the event of selling up and moving home the loan is sold with the property.
We believe that Green Deal is a great way forward in the battle of reducing CO2 and Britain’s collective footprint. We recommend all homeowners take advantage of this opportunity and make your home’s energy consumption as self-sufficient as possible.
