  • 1. What Is The Green Deal?The Green Deal is a package of funding, loan systems and industrystandards that the government has developed, all aimed at makingenergy saving in the home and work easier for everyone.Step 1: AssessmentStep 2: FinanceStep 3: InstallationStep 4: Repayment
  • 2. Step 1: AssessmentGreen Deal Assessor does an EPC & Occupancy Assessment on aproperty & produces a Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR). Assessoris independent of installers.Measures recommended must meet the Golden Rule:‘Savings made must be more than the cost of the work’The GDAR is portable & canbe given to any Green DealProvider...Properties will be givenbehavioural advice.
  • 3. Step 2: FinanceThe bill payer talks to a Green Deal Provider who provides details on:1. Cost of the measures2. Finance (cost, interest rates, warranties, early repaymentcharges)3. Available funding – you can add your ownIt looks like loans will be around 7.5% APRGreen Deal Finance is attached to the property’s electricity meterso when the resident moves out the charge stays with the propertyUp to 25 years if required
  • 4. Step 3: InstallationThe Green Deal Provider uses an authorised Green Deal Installer toinstall the agreed energy saving measures.Once work has finished a newEPC is created to show the newenergy rating.
  • 5. Step 3: RepaymentsThe Green Deal repayments will appear on the electricity bill as aseparate charge.The frequency at which the bill-payer receives the electricity billdoesn’t change.If the residents change how they use energyin their home once the Green Deal work hasfinished then there is a chance that theymay end up paying more instead of savingmoney.
