Government’s Green Deal makes for better standards of living

We’ve posted a few articles here at Britelite Windows regarding the Coalitian Government’s Green Deal; namely how you can get energy-efficient home improvements on your property while cutting lethal carbon emissions at the same time.

Greg Barker, minister for climate change, released a statement at Retrofit Salford 2011 claiming the scheme will also be a “fundamental game-changer”, helping as many as 14 million households in the UK save money on their fuel bills.

At a time when VAT has risen to 20% in many sectors, public spending has been radically slashed and unemployment is at its highest levels for decades, shaving a few pounds off the cost of living could well be just the ticket to a better quality of life.

The UK is one of the worst-performing countries in Europe for energy efficiency. Barker has high hopes that the scheme will put us in pole position in terms of reducing greenhouse gases:
“We are putting in place the framework and the long-term delivery structure to allow this revolution in energy efficiency to really take hold and to complete the task over the next decade.”

Last year we told you how much money you could save by installing A-rated windows and doors in your property. With the average household saving anywhere between £44 and £325 per annum, that’s a lot of cash you could use on other ventures.

If you haven’t heard of the Green Deal, or how it could affect your commitment to reducing harmful carbon emissions, take a look at the Department of Energy and Climate Change site now. There are details outlining the scheme, downloadable PDFs explaining why it is so important, and links that will help you work out how much you are entitled to.
