02/02/2012 Building Regulations to drive demand for Green Deal
Measures to drive up demand for The Green Deal have been announced to make Britain's buildings greener!
Existing properties that have any building work on them such as extensions may have to invest in energy efficiency improvements from October this year - this would be financed through the Green Deal.
New builds will also be effected as the Government has said how it would like to move towards zero carbon standards from 2016. By 2020 the government want to insulate 14 million homes through the Green Deal. From the autumn homeowners will be able to take loans out to pay for energy efficiency methods which will guarantee that savings on their energy bills will be greater than loan repayments. These new changes could save homeowners over £150 per year on their energy bills, compared to homes which were built in May 2010!
