Green Deal Advice Reports – Green Deal Providers, Green Deal Installers
What is the Green Deal?
The Green Deal is Government-led initiative which aims to help occupiers of residential and commercial property reduce their energy bills and save money. Green Deal is not just about finance and loans; some energy improvements cost little or even nothing. A qualified and certified Synergy Green Deal Advisor would visit you at the property and undertake an assessment of the property itself to identify what can be done to reduce the amount of energy you use, but just as importantly will discuss with you how you use the property and suggest some (frequently no or lo-cost) changes for you to consider. The end result will be a Green Deal Advice Report that is bespoke to you and your property which shows appropriate improvement that could be made and the savings they would achieve. The report can then be used to apply for Green Deal finance if required or, if appropriate, for applications for certain ECO grant funding or payments under the Renewable Heat Incentive.
How can I apply for Green Deal finance?
Applications for Green Deal finance start with the preparation of a mandatory Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR).
Green Deal Advice Report
Your Synergy Green Deal Advisor will also create your Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR), without which you cannot start your application for a Green Deal loan. The Green Deal Advice Report is a detailed assessment of the property itself combined with information about how it is actually used. As part of the report your Synergy Green Deal Advisor will produce a valid and accurate Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and the results from an Occupation Assessment. This stage of the Green Deal consultation will conclude with a discussion with you on the energy saving options recommended to ensure that you are entirely happy that the final Green Deal Advice Report reflects your personal needs.
Green Deal Providers and Installers
Once the final Green Deal Advice Report is issued, you can take it to any Government authorised Green Deal Provider or Installer to obtain quotations for the recommended energy saving work. You are under no obligation to proceed if you are not happy and should obtain several quotations for the work required. Synergy Property Services can recommend a number of Green Deal Installers; our service to you can include obtaining quotations from Green Deal Providers and co-ordinating the improvement installation works for you if you wish.
Only companies who are authorised by the Government under the ‘Green Deal’ can participate. This applies to finance providers, installers and Green Deal Advisors. Synergy Property Services Ltd. are accredited Green Deal Advisors, independent of any other organisation and will work solely and impartially in your best interests at all time.
