Green Deal Scheme and Local Authorities
Eco Target runs a Green Deal public relations initiative that helps local councils increase their profile among borough residents as active environmental champions, and to stand out nationally as positive contributors the UK’s energy reduction targets.
Eco Target works with local councils to help them make the most of the Green Deal to scheme so they can make energy saving improvements to local properties. Working with us is a simple and cost effective way for local authorities to increase their profile among borough residents as active environmental champions, and to stand out nationally as positive contributors the UK’s energy reduction targets.
As approved assessors and installers we work with local authorities to make measurable improvements to a selection of properties in the borough under the Green Deal scheme. Most of the work like loft insulation and cavity wall insulation costs councils little or nothing; where costs are involved, as in the supply and fitting of solar panels, the council is of course able to claw back the benefits in resale of energy to the grid under the Feed-in-Tariff.
We work with the council to identity the type of energy reduction improvement work to be carried out and the properties the work is to be carried out on. Once the work has been completed in the nominated pilot properties we stay in touch to monitor their energy performance over a period of time, producing before and after comparison reports that show what benefits have been achieved.
Eco Target is proud to be working with local authorities to carry out vital energy efficiency work and to help them meet local and national targets to reduce carbon footprint. Having us on board is a great way for councils to meet their owngreen targets. The work we carry out can help to significantly raise the council’s profile and build trust and recognition of its environmental contribution among residents.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of all is the potential savings tenants can receive when local authorities work with Eco Target. Tenants will be able to see how energy efficient their homes really are with an EPC and to benefit from advice as to how they can make further improvements. Residents will also see the improvements through warmer, more energy efficient homes and lower energy bills.We can see no better way to help councils improve their profile among residents. It is a great way to demonstrate action on your environmental policies.
