Residents offered free Green Deal assessment

Local residents are being offered a special deal on Solent Green Deal assessments to help improve their homes.

With energy prices rising every year it’s becoming more important for residents to insulate their homes to save money and stay warm.

The Council is so confident that residents will benefit from a Green Deal assessment that they are offering a special deal for residents. The first 75 borough residents, that have not yet benefitted from cavity wall and loft insulation being installed in their home, and register for a Green Deal assessment during March will be entered into a special trial initiative. This will mean that should they decide not to take up measures through our scheme they will not have to pay a penny of the normal £150 assessment fee.

Cabinet Lead for Environment & Sustainability Cllr Louise Bloom said,

“The Council have two Solent Green Deal Assessors who have already carried out dozens of green deal assessments of local homes. They are helping local people benefit from energy improvements such as wall insulation, double glazing, or new boilers that can help keep them warm, save them money and increasing the value of their property.”

Solent Green Deal Assessor James Penders said,

“With energy prices rising now is the time to have your Green Deal assessment done to help reduce the amount of energy you use, understand your energy bills and see which measures will reduce your costs.”
