The scheme subsidises single domestic dwellings and is open to owner-occupiers, private landlords, Registered Providers of Social Housing, third party owners of heating systems and self-builders who installed an eligible technology after 15th July 2009, provided they meet the scheme criteria
The financial support will be paid at a set rate per unit of renewable heat produced (kilowatt hour or kWh), for seven years, to the owner of the heating system estimated at the time of installation. The rate will increase each year in line with the Retail Price Index.
All applicants are required to complete a Green Deal Assessmentbefore applying and to ensure they meet minimum energy efficiency requirements of loft and cavity insulation where required.
The rates are subject to a constant review process and the current rates must be checked at the time of installation. See the link on the top right of this page.
