How To Become a Green Deal Installer

Green Deal InstallerThe Green Deal scheme is a special government agreement that can help homeowners make significant energy saving improvements to their homes or businesses. Because the Green Deal is a loan and not a grant, most people who are eligible will have to pay back the costs of the improvements back over a period of time. The advantage of the scheme is that the savings you will be making on your energy bills will be more than enough to cover the repayment of the loan.

When a property has been assessed and approved for Green Deal measurements, certified Green Deal Installers will carry out the work on the property. Only authorised green deal installers can make the necessary energy efficiency improvements as approved under the scheme. If you are an independent operator or have a company involved in installing measures for the programme you can go through and gain certification if you meet the necessary criteria.
