This Green Deal is a government initiative that provides loans for energy effiency home improvements. These include energy efficient boilers, double glazing or insulation.
You can apply if you are a home owner, landlord or tenant. The cost of the loan is paid through the electricity bill at the property over a set period of time. This means future tenants or homeowners will take over the loan repayments.
Your landlord needs your permission to make Green Deal improvements to your home if you are a tenant. Similarly, you need your landlord’s permission if you are a tenant who wants to use the scheme.
The amount of energy you use should go down once the new equipment is installed, but you may not see a reduction in your bills. This is because you will be repaying the Green Deal loan.
