The Green deal is government legislation designed to help home owners and businesses reduce their energy consumption, save money and help the UK meet its carbon reduction and renewable energy targets.
The way the Green Deal is financed means people will pay for energy efficiency improvements through savings on their energy bills.
1st Choice are proud to take part in the Scheme and are an approved Green Deal Installer.
There are many energy efficiency measures that have been approved to receive funding under the Green Deal, we are delighted these include;
The Green Deal has four key stages.
We will arrange for a Green Deal Assessor to visit your property to identify the energy efficiency improvements that would be most beneficial to you.
We will then produce a report outlining your options.
Once you have your report the 1st Choice can help you to appoint a Green Deal Provider who can fund the improvements. If you do decide to go ahead you will be asked to sign a Green Deal Plan which is a contract between you and the Green Deal Provider.
1st Choice will arrange a suitable time to carry out the work you have agreed to in your Green Deal Plan.
We regularly work with Green Deal Assessors and Green Deal Providers and we can make the process as simple as possible.
You will only pay back the cost of your improvements over time through the savings made on your energy bill. Your energy supplier will pass on details of your payments to your Green Deal Provider and the amount you pay back will be no more than what you save on your bill after the improvements have been installed.
The way the Green Deal Finance is arranged means this is not the same as a conventional loan. The charges are attached to your property so, if you move out, the new occupant will pick up the charge whilst also benefiting from a more energy efficient property.
Although interest is charged on these payments, the rate is fixed and you will be shown a full schedule of repayments before you are asked to sign up to your Green Deal Plan.
