The Green Deal is a scheme that can help you make energy-saving improvements to your home business, for example:
- insulation - e.g. solid wall, cavity wall or loft insulation
- double glazing
- renewable energy generation - e.g. solar panels or heat pumps
You can make energy-saving improvements to your business without having to pay all the costs in advance.
You have to pay back the cost of the improvements over time because the Green Deal is a loan, not a grant. However, the savings on your energy bills after you've made the improvements should cover the repayment of the loan.
You can also choose to pay for improvements in advance using Green Deal providers and certified installers.
