• Green Deal

  • What is Green Deal?

    Green Deal was a government scheme that helped people with improvements to make their homes more energy efficient.

    You can't apply for Green Deal anymore as the scheme is closed to new applications.

    When someone signed up to Green Deal, they took out a loan to cover some or all of the cost of energy efficient improvements. They pay the loan back in instalments through their electricity bill.

    You can visit gov.uk for more information about Green Deal.

    Information for existing Green Deal customers

  • How Green Deal payments work

    If you had Green Deal improvements before the scheme closed, you'll be paying for them through your electricity bill.
    We add the agreed monthly charge to your bill. The monthly charge is shown on your original quote.

    If you move home

    Green Deal stays with the property; not you as an individual.

    This means that if you move, the new owner would take on the repayments. This is because they'd benefit from the improvements.

    Likewise, if you move into a property with Green Deal set up, you'll take on the repayments.
