1) Saving you money
The most obvious way of getting people on board – saving them money! In a time where energy prices are incredibly high, and rising still, any opportunity to save money is a good one and The Green Deal is one not to be missed.
Installing insulation/heating efficieny measures under The Green Deal can save you a great deal of money in the long run. In some households these installations could save you up to £550 per year on bilss; why miss out on such great savings and such a great opportunity?
2) Saving the environment
As well as saving money, this scheme goes hand-in-hand with saving the environment. With so much strain being put on the environment for it’s resources, The Green Deal provides us with the chance to take responsibility and ease off the earth.
3) Increasing property value
As concerns regarding money and the environment rise, so too does the concern about energy efficiency. The efficiency of a building is something growing in priority for potential buyers; an energy efficient home holds long term value and is a plus point for those looking to buy.
4) Generating jobs
Although it may not be something that you find has an immediate effect on yourself, this programme could support around 250,000 jobs over the next 20 years within the UK. At a time when job opportunities are at an all time low, this scheme could pave a way for Britain to get back on it’s feet.
The Green Deal is a fantastic opportunity for an incredible amount of people and it is well worth looking into. You can find more information, as well as things like support forums, here:
