The department of energy and climate change have confirmed that hundreds of pounds will be made available as cash back to customers who take up the Green Deal from January 2013. Property owners quick off the mark could get as much as £1,000 cash back.
From 28th January 2013, households who use the Green Deal to make improvements such as loft insulation, solid wall insulation and new windows will qualify. The Green Deal Cashback Scheme is a first-come, first-served offer, and the more work households have done, the more cash back they will receive.
Energy Minister Ed Davey commented on the announcement "This cash back offer will help get the Green Deal off to a flying start. It really is a great offer – the more work households have done, the more energy they stand to save and the more cash they receive".
