The Green Deal Swansea
FREE CAVITY WALL INSULATION and LOFT INSULATION GRANTS (not means tested) are available in Swansea, Llanelli, Neath, Port Talbot - and in fact throughout West Wales.
The Green Deal no longer exists!
The Green Deal was a finance mechanism, where energy efficiency improvemnents could be made to your home, through a loan, which was then repaid through your electricity bill - together with interest.
The plan was that Gas & Electricity companies, "Do it Yourself" companies and the such, would put money into the "Green Deal Finance Company" - but it didn't happen, and the Coalition Government funded it - that is you and me.
When the Conservatives came to power (without the Lib Dems), they decided that they would not invest anymore money into the scheme. So, The Green Deal still exists in theory, but is unable to operate - and probably never will.
So where does that leave us?
Well there is ECO (the Energy Company Obligation), and that is set to run for another couple of years (we'll see).
ECO is basically the Insulation Grant scheme, and is available for Cavity Wall Insulation and Loft Insulation. These Grants are not means tested, nor benefit dependant, and so everyone qualifies for such a Grant (non repayable), but the energy efficiency of the property will decide the size of the Grant. The lower the energy efficiency the bigger the Grant.
In more than 90% of cases, Cavity Wall Insulation will be free, but the Grants are only available for properties built before 1983. The other 10% will have to make a small contribution.
Loft Insulation is a little more complicated. In the case of Cavity Wall Insulation, it has either been done or not been done, but with Loft Insulation there could be any level of existing insulation - from none whatsoever right up to 300mm (12 inches) - the deeper the existing loft insulation the smaller the Grant.
If there is no insulation in the loft then the Grant would fully cover the cost of the loft being insulated to 270mm 99.9% of the time, but for every 1mm of existing insulation the Grant would reduce.
At 100mm of existing loft insulation the Grant would be nil, although this could happen at as little as 75mm depending on the property's type, age etc..
So Free Cavity Wall Insulation and Free Loft Insulation are available in Swansea and throughout West Wales - you just need to find out whether your property qualifies.
And that's about it.
