This is the name of a plan introduced by the Government to deliver home improvements and save homeowners money on their energy bills.

Through the Green Deal, homeowners will be able to have their homes assessed to see if there is scope to make energy savings. Any cost-savings are calculated and it is these savings over a pre-determined time that are used to fund the improvements and repay the Green Deal provider.

A householder should see no overall increase in their outgoings, but they will be living in a warmer, greener home. Properties need to be assessed by Green Deal specialists and any recommended work is carried out through approved contractors. Improvements to homes through the Green Deal will range from draught proofing and double glazing to installing new ways of generating power such as micro wind turbines and solar panels.

In some areas the local authorities are taking the initiative and establishing a Green Deal provider for their area who will act as a hub for enquiries and assessments whilst co-ordinating the work of approved contractors.
