Essentially, the Green Deal allows you to pay for energy efficiency improvement to your home or business over time through your electricity bills – including work such as insulation, heating, draught-proofing, double glazing and installing renewable energy technologies.
Speaking to The Independent, Ann Robinson, Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch.com said:
“The high cost of energy today means that Green Deal has to deliver. There is a lot at stake here for consumers. Household energy is rapidly becoming unaffordable and reducing the amount we use will protect us from higher bills. This is why consumers need to have a simple, well-designed and well-communicated scheme they can trust, if they are to feel the benefits in their pockets and on their bills.”
In light of these latest figures, one thing’s for certain – there will have to be a raft of publicity over the launch period to ensure mass uptake of the scheme.
