Green Deal finance will be available if the expected savings exceed the costs associated with install and interest payments on any measures installed. This rule of thumb is more commonly know as the ‘Golden Rule’. On your Green Deal Advice Report you will notice that some recommended measures will have a Green tick next to them, some will have an orange tick and some won’t have any tick. The Green Tick means that the expected savings exceed the costs. The Orange Tick means that Green Deal finance may be available but further finance may be required as the savings are not expected to completely outweigh the costs of install.

If there is no tick next to the measure then it is most likely that the costs outweigh the savings. If this is the case then please consult your Green Deal Provider for further assistance and to discuss what Green Deal options are available to you.
