A Cornish renewable energy specialist has been named as one of the first in the UK to pioneer the Government’s multi-billion pound Green Deal initiative.
Enact Energy CEO John Egan met with Climate Change Minister Greg Barker in London yesterday (April 4) to sign an agreement with the Government, which will see it and 21 other companies and organisations, including Carillion, E-ON, British Gas, Kingfisher and Anglian Home Improvements become the first UK Green Deal providers.
The Green Deal is the Government’s plan to improve the nations draughty homes at no upfront cost, which will see Enact and the other Green Deal providers offer energy efficiency packages to consumers when the scheme launches later this year.
The Government believes up to 26 million homes could be eligible under the Green Deal, creating some 65,000 new jobs.
Egan said: “Enact is pleased to be a part of the Pioneer Green Deal Provider Group. The Green Deal promises to move the renewable and energy saving market on from the consideration of individual technologies and measures to a genuine whole house approach to improving the energy performance of UK homes.”
