22 organisations have met with Climate Change Minister Greg Barker to sign an agreement with government to work to become the first Green Deal providers.
The Green Deal is the government’s plan to improve the nation’s draughty homes at no upfront cost to the consumer.
The organisations who have signed today’s agreement at DECC include big business, SME’s and a community group. Green Deal providers will be offering energy efficiency packages to consumers when the scheme launches later this year.
The Government will be working with the pioneers to ensure the move from testing into a managed launch in October works seamlessly and provides a good customer experience from day one.
Greg Barker said:
“The signing of this agreement between government and business pioneers represents a watershed moment in the development of the Green Deal.
“The commitment shown today highlights the opportunity organisations see in the Green Deal from community groups, SMEs to big business which only bodes well for the scheme’s future success.
“We will be working with these organisations to ensure they can fulfil the potential they have demonstrated today and become the first to offer Green Deals.”
