Eco & Green Deal

Green Deal

What is the Green Deal?
The Green Deal is a new way to pay for energy-saving home improvements. You’ll be able to take out Green Deal finance to pay for measures such as loft, cavity or solid wall insulation, double glazing, a new boiler or even a ‘micro-generation’ system such as solar panels.

How does Green Deal work?
The Green Deal process has four steps:

  • Assessment
  • Finance
  • Installation
  • Repayment

ECO

What is the Energy Company Obligation (ECO)?
ECO works alongside the government’s Green Deal to help people install energy-efficiency measures to their home. Under this scheme the big energy suppliers are legally obliged to help the following with energy-efficiency measures:

  • Low income and vulnerable households
  • Homes that may not benefit from savings from the Green Deal
  • Homes in low income areas

ECO and the Green Deal
Money from ECO may be available to subsidise your Green Deal. ECO funding is available for relatively expensive energy-efficient measures where the savings on your electricity bill may not be greater than the cost of the installation. For instance, solid wall insulation, internal wall insulation and ‘hard to treat’ cavity wall insulation are all eligible for extra ECO money to pay for its installation as part of the Green Deal.

Renewable Heat Incenctive

What is the Renewable Heat Incentive?
Due to launch in Summer 2014, the RHI is a government incentive scheme designed to reward those who use renewable energy to heat their buildings. Initially only industrial, commercial, public sector and community organisations will be eligible to apply, but a second phase will allow residential homes to benefit too. The RHI will guarantee regular ‘tariff’ payments for 20 years based on the amount of renewable energy they generate.

How will the RHI payments work?
After joining the RHI scheme, homes will receive a quarterly tariff payment for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of renewable heat they produce and payable for 20 years. Tariff levels for the household phase have not yet been set out but are likely to vary for different technologies. Energy regulator Ofgem will be responsible for dealing with applications and payments.

Which renewable heat technologies will be eligible?

  • Solar thermal heating systems
  • Biomass or woodburning boilers
  • Ground source heat pumps
  • Air source heat pumps
