CGS - Green Deal Explained
In a bid to improve our status as an environmentally conscious country, the ‘Green Deal’ is a new scheme introduced by the government to help homeowners and businesses alike to become greener. Suitable for homeowners and businesses alike, the new government initiative allows Green Deal providers (such as Tesco, M&S and B&Q) to finance the work needed to improve the infrastructure of UK properties.
The Green Deal UK is completely unique and has one golden rule; the saving made by the improvements must be more than the cost to make the improvements. And unlike a normal loan, the money is attached to the property not the person and is paid back through the energy bills.
