Local renewable energy specialist, Enact Energy, has become the first in Cornwall to achieve Green Deal provider status from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
The company, launched in 1996, has made over 300,000 energy efficiency upgrades to homes across the UK by installing solar power systems, cavity wall and loft insulation, and heating upgrades.
The company will now be able to offer access to Green Deal funding and finance options to homeowners across the south west and the rest of the UK.
Enact founder and CEO Adrian Wright explained: “The Green Deal is the Government’s new energy initiative which plans for the improvement of the nation’s energy efficient homes.
“We are delighted to have achieved official Green Deal Provider status which means we can play a full and central role in delivering all of the benefits that the Green Deal offers. To achieve this status we have had to undergo rigorous and stringent assessments so to now have it officially is great news.”
