Green Deal and Local Government

How important is The Green Deal for local government? Well it turns out VERY! Portsmouth City Council has been taking the lead with changes to their Square Deal programme to also incorporate The Green Deal.

Portsmouth City Council operate a trading scheme designed to protect local residents from rogue traders and 'rip off merchants'. All approved traders are listed on the Square Deal website. However trading standards have now taken the bold move to also include all local Green Deal approved contractors on the Square Deal website as well.

Since the Portsmouth based scheme began it has received daily calls from local residents looking for approved and trusted businesses. So from today local residents can also use the service to find approved Green Deal installers and Green Deal Assessors.

If you are a Portsmouth based Green Deal company and want to be included within the Square Deal website you can find out more at:

Any Green Deal businesses that become members can enjoy a wide range of benefits including increased advertising, web-site assistance and a dedicated phone number.
