Firstly, a Green Deal Assessor will come to your home, talk to you about your energy use and see if you could benefit from making energy efficiency improvements. Your Assessor will recommend improvements that are appropriate for your property and indicate whether they are expected to pay for themselves through reduced energy bills. Green Deal Providers will then quote for the recommended improvements. You can get as many quotes as you like, and you don’t have to choose all of the recommendations made to you.
Once you’ve chosen a Green Deal Provider, they will write up a Green Deal Plan. The plan is a contract between you and the Provider – it sets out the work that will be done and the repayments, including the fixed interest rate. Once you’ve agreed to a Green Deal Plan, your Provider will arrange for the improvements to be made to your home by a Green Deal Installer. You can then start to enjoy a more energy efficient home. Your Green Deal repayments will be automatically added to the electricity bill for the home.
