GreenDeal makes it to the starting blocks

With the passing of secondary legislation in the house of commons earlier this week, Green Deal and ECO have entered the delivery stage according to DECC.

With the frameworks completed, the appointment of Gemserve and REAL to manage the Green Deal Oversight and Registration Body, and the Ombudsman Service operating the Green Deal Ombudsman and Investigation Body all systems are go for registration of Assessors, Installers and Providers from August.

Assessment under Green Deal can start from October. Customers able to fund their plan upfront themselves, or those funded as part of the ECO, can start then, whilst, customers needing Green Deal financing will be able to complete their Green Deal plan from January 2013.
