Green Deal for providers

Many households and businesses across the UK may need energy saving home improvements now that the Green Deal has been launched. This is a major opportunity for commercial installation organizations to help achieve these fundamental improvements – playing a major role in the success and delivery of the Green Deal.    


What is a Green Deal Provider?

You are responsible for financing and arranging the installation of energy efficiency measures. Your responsibilities will include advising customers on a Green Deal Plan suited to their circumstances. You’ll establish the financial terms of this plan, including measures such as warranties. And you’ll establish a relationship with the customer throughout the lifetime of the products – managing complaints or queries. Finally, you’ll manage the handover process when a property changes ownership.  


How do I become a Green Deal Provider?

You will need to sign up to and comply with the Green Deal Code of Practice. You will also sign a Green Deal Arrangements Agreement – a contract between you and the electricity suppliers overseeing the payment process. Other requirements include a Consumer Credit Act (CCA) licence so you can manage customer financial plans. BSI has a Green Deal provider certification scheme to help you gain greater customer trust and recognition.
