1.6.3 Green Deal

The Green Deal allows for energy efficiency improvements to be made and the cost of those improvements are offset by savings made by the energy improvements.

The Green Deal has a “golden rule” which says that any cost of improvement must not exceed the savings being made by the improvements. This effectively means the improvements are free of charge and once paid for, the savings would begin. There are other factors to be considered under the golden rule such as the expected life of any energy efficiency improvement made.
