WALES Office Minister Stephen Crabb MP is urging people in Wales to take advantage of an initiative designed to give homes and businesses a new way of paying for energy efficient building improvements.
The Green Deal, launched by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, gives people the opportunity to pay for energy efficient home improvements with savings on their energy bills.
Households in Wales who use the Green Deal to make energy saving home improvements will also qualify for hundreds of pounds of cashback from the Green Deal Cashback Scheme. The more work households decide to have done, the more cash they could receive with packages potentially worth more than £1,000. Welcoming the initiative, Mr Crabb said: "With families and businesses across Wales facing the challenges of rising fuel and energy costs, the launch of the Green Deal will give people the opportunity to have more flexibility in the way to pay for energy saving building improvements.
"The improvements they can make through the Green Deal — new insulation or heating systems — will give homeowners the opportunity to transform their homes, and most importantly, reduce their energy bills."
