How the Green Deal works
You can make energy-saving improvements to your home or business without having to pay all the costs up front through the Green Deal.
Energy-saving improvements include:
insulation - eg loft or cavity wall insulation, heating, draught-proofing, double glazing, renewable energy technologies - eg solar panels or wind turbines
I will produce a Green Deal Advice Report made up of two documents:
an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), which rates your home’s energy efficiency on an A to G rating scale
an Occupancy Assessment, which assesses how you use energy in your home.
EPCs are already in use, as they have to be produced when properties are sold or rented out. An EPC is a basic assessment of the fabric of your property; it assumes how many people live in the property and how they use their heating, so it does not take account of your actual usage or energy bills. The Occupancy Assessment is personalised to you and does assess your own energy use.
The EPC is used to decide the amount of Green Deal finance you can borrow. This means there is a risk - particularly for low energy users - that the EPC could overstate how much energy you could save, meaning that your repayments might be higher than the savings you make on your energy bills. In this case, the assessor is required to get a written acknowledgement from you, showing that you are aware of this risk.
