The Green Deal is a policy of the UK Government which permits the citizens to take loans for measures in implementing energy saving mechanisms for their properties in the Great Britain. The energy saving mechanism could be one of the following : insulating the loft or a cavity wall, heating, draught proofing, double glazing or installing renewable energy plants like solar panel or wind energy turbines in the home or business spaces.
Once you decide to revolutionize your home with The GreeN Deal, you need to consult a Green Deal Assessor. The assessor will then assess your property and electricity usage and finally give you the Green Deal Advice Report. It is a detailed report on how you could go green and how much you can expect to save on your energy bills. In case you are not satisfied with the report, you can choose to consult as many as assessors of your choice.
The Green Deal : After the choice is made, you have to sign the Green Deal Plan. This is a contract between the Green Deal provider and you which says what energy mechanisms will be implemented and how much it will cost. Once the Green Deal Plan is signed, the provider will ask the Green Deal installer to start implementing the mutually agreed energy saving options. This contract will also include the repayment amount with the interest rate. (more...)
