Green Deal

Rising Fuel Costs

The average household in the UK could be losing over £300 a year due to poor energy efficiency, according to government figures. With gas and electricity prices likely to rise in the future, these losses are only going to get bigger, so energy efficiency is becoming more and more important.

For those wanting to save energy in the home, there are a range of energy grants and offers available to homeowners, to help cover the initial costs involved in installing energy-efficient features.

Most of these grants were funded by a government-backed scheme called the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target. This ceased in December 2012 and was replaced by the Green Deal.

The Green Deal

The Green Deal offers a new way to pay for energy-saving home improvements. Green Deal finance is available to pay for measures such as loft, cavity or solid wall insulation, double glazing, a new boiler or even a 'micro-generation' system such as solar panels.

The Green Deal also has an element of grant called the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). Under this scheme the big energy suppliers are legally obliged to help the following with energy-efficiency measures:

  • Low income/vulnerable households
  • Homes that may not benefit from savings from the Green Deal
  • Homes in low income areas

As part of ECO, the government estimates that £1.3 billion per year worth of energy efficiency and heating measures will be delivered across Great Britain.

Energy Company Obligation

Money from ECO may be available to subsidise your Green Deal. ECO funding is available for relatively expensive energy-efficient measures, where installation costs may exceed potential savings.

Although it is quite complicated to work out if you are eligible for ECO funding - it depends on what measures your house needs, where you live and if you receive any benefits - Greentec's experts are on hand to determine ECO eligibility and Green Deal viability for you.
