Our Green Deal in Somerset

Getting the Green Deal rolling..

 

Our Green Deal in Somerset is a local authority-backed scheme run by the Centre for Sustainable Energy, Bristol (CSE) and coordinated through local community groups in Somerset. The aim of the scheme is to increase the take-up of Green Deal home-improvement measures such as new heating systems, loft or wall insulation, secondary glazing and draught-proofing

 

To get the ball rolling, an allocation of  free home energy assessments are being  offered by Local Authorities to householders in Somerset. These assessments are the first step in the Green Deal process and normally cost around £175. The offer ends on 28 March 2013

To request an Application form email hec@localgen.org.uk or call 01460 250986

 

The local authorities involved in Our Green Deal in Somerset are the district councils of Mendip, Sedgemoor, South Somerset (SSDC), Taunton Deane and West Somerset, and the unitary authorities of North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset

 

The assessment will show which energy efficiency improvements would work best for that particular home, and which improvements could be funded through the Green Deal in such a way that repayments are more than covered by savings on household energy bills.

The initiative is taking place in order to increase awareness of the Green Deal and of the need for energy-efficiency in the home - the householder  will receive an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) from the assessment but will have no obligation to undertake any of the recommended improvements

 

An innovative aspect of the project is the involvement of community groups in the county, who will be explaining to their community how the Green Deal works and the benefit to householders in their locality. For South Somerset, the Home Energy Centre, Ilminster has been asked to act as a Lead Group, and so will be processing, together with Ilminster-based South Somerset Climate Action, requests from householders for an assessment as well as providing information about the Green Deal.
