Green Deal Energy Saving Grants
The most popular way of being able to gain an assessment of your property to examine what energy saving benefits you could be entitled to is through a Green Deal Assessment. The Green Deal is a UK Government-run incentive to have properties in the country brought up to date with their energy saving properties and to start to bring the UK in line with an eco-friendly energy consumption and production rate to cut carbon emissions by up to 80% before 2050. Self-sufficiency through renewable energy sources, insulation improvements and general energy saving improvements are a key feature for the Green Deal Scheme. At DMS Energy we are fully qualified to carry out a Green Deal assessment on any property in Glasgow and the wider Scotland area. What does a Green Deal assessment include? It allows us to be able to take an in-depth look at your property and your situation to be able to determine which energy saving options are right for you. We will then create a full report outlining what could be improved and assist you with ways to improve your energy consumption or renewable production. We also are able to provide a full Energy Performance Certificate Glasgow and Scotland. This is a legal requirement for all properties and is required when selling or renting a property. It gives a great insight into the areas where energy is being lost and allows companies like us to be able to assist in finding out exactly what you need. The Green Deal scheme allows for individuals to be able to use the money that is saved on monthly energy bills on other areas of home improvement for energy saving mostly focused on insulation, boilers, and renewable energy sources such as solar panels.

With renewable energy fast becoming a great way for many of us to generate energy for our homes, the government has clearly been improving their outlook on them and has been investing in pushing for energy providers to pay you back for the energy you generate. For each kilowatt-hour you generate and add back into the national grid, you will be paid a set amount. This amount is due to change this year on February 8, so be sure to contact us for more information on the current state of the feed-in tariff scheme. In order to benefit from this scheme, you have to have a renewable energy unit set up by a qualified and registered installer. Your energy suppliers will let you know their status with this scheme also and tell you how and when your payments will arrive. Visit the Government website for further information and for a cashback calculator to see how much you could gain from your renewables.
