What is the Green Deal?
According to the DECC, the Green Deal is “a framework to enable private firms to offer consumers energy efficiency improvements to their homes, community spaces and businesses at no upfront cost, and to recoup payments through a charge in instalments on the energy bill.”
In other words, it is essentially a loan. The cost of the improvements is to be recovered through instalments on the energy bill (likely over several years). This is different from a personal loan in that you are not obligated to continue paying if you move house.
If cost is holding you back from undertaking home improvements, it may be worth taking a look at the Warm Front grant.
