What is Green Deal?
The Green Deal is a government scheme that helps you make improvements to your home that will save energy, lower your bills and reduce your carbon footprint. You aren’t directly given the money to make the improvements but benefit from it through your energy bills.
Eco Target will organise an assessment of your home, the price of which isn’t included in the scheme unless you are on benefits. If you do pay for one it may be possible to claim the money back. The Assessor will visit you at your property and look at the ways you use energy, find out how many people are living at the property, see what energy saving improvements you already have installed and look at your energy bills.
You will then be sent an assessment certificate, which is valid for ten years. The certificate gives your home an energy rating from A to G. A is the most efficient and G is the least efficient and it then outlines how you use energy and the energy saving improvements that are recommended.
We then give you a plan that outlines the cost of the improvements, how much you can borrow and over what period of time and the interest rate payable. Once you are happy to go ahead we will carry out the work and the loan will be paid through your electricity bill. The idea is that the savings you make are taken to pay your loan and if you sell your house the loan is transferred to the new owners.
