Recent statistics released by the Department of Energy & Climate Change have shown a further increase in the number of Renewable Technologies installed utilising Green Deal Finance.
Figures to the end of June 2014, show that 27% of Green Deal Finance plans have been used to install renewable technologies. The majority of finance has so far been used to install Solar PV systems however the first installations of Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal and Biomass have now also taken place utilising Green Deal Finance.
Green Deal Finance can be used to installer energy efficiency measures including renewables and offers homeowners the opportunity to either fully or partially fund the installation cost with Green Deal Finance, which is then linked to the savings made on their energy bills.
Full Renewable Heat Incentive & Feed in Tariff payments can still be claimed by the homeowner.
Green Deal Finance represents another opportunity for MCS Installers. MCS Installers need to register to become a Green Deal Installer which requires compliance with some additional MCS requirements, there is not usually any additional cost and you will immediately be able to access further work streams.
Your Easy MCS Mentor will be able to provide advice on this and the process for becoming registered.
