The Green Deal is a government-backed scheme which aims to help businesses across the UK benefit from affordable energy-saving improvements. Costs for these improvements do not have to be paid upfront and can be repaid through your electricity bill.
The Government has now stopped funding the Green Deal Scheme – you may still be able to obtain Green Deal funding from providers who are self-financing. If you have already applied to the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund then you are not affected but need to ensure that you get the work done and redeem your voucher before it expires.
If you are interested in the Green Deal, you will first be asked to get an assessment of your property to see what improvements can be made. You will then have to choose a Green Deal provider to decide if the Green Deal is right for you and to agree upon the improvements to be made. Once this has been done, and the work has been completed, you can then pay off the money in instalments through your electricity bill.
As a participating electricity supplier, Opus Energy is authorised to collect the monthly instalments due under the contract made between you and your chosen Green Deal provider. The Green Deal monthly payment is clearly marked as a separate item on the monthly invoice sent by us, and once the payment is received, we will remit this back to your Green Deal provider.
