Green Deal (UK)

Government financed home improvement loans

The Green Deal is a new way to pay for energy-saving home improvements in the UK. You can 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. The loan is repaid through savings made on your electricity bills, therefore your bills shouldn't be any higher than usual.

Once the loan is paid off you can take full advantage of the energy savings.The Green Deal is UK government policy to permit loans for energy saving measures for properties in Great Britain and was officially launched in January 2013. These measures are designed to enable consumers to benefit from energy efficient improvements to their home. The loans are repaid through energy bills and transfer with the property rather than those who took out the loan.
