Greenteam to deliver Oldham’s Green Deal
The Green Deal scheme, to be launched in October 2012, is the Government’s flagship home improvement programme. Funded through low interest loans and energy company subsidies, the scheme will offer every home owner and commercial building owner the opportunity to install energy efficiency measures to reduce energy bills, combat rising fuel prices and help to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions.
Teaming up with the UK’s leading Green Deal expert, Phyllis Boardman of PB Energy Solutions Ltd and Green Deal Nationwide, Greenteam are today launching their pioneering ‘Get Green Deal Ready’ initiative.
This ground breaking energy efficiency resource will bring low carbon measures and technology to Oldham, with no up-front costs, to provide a one stop shop for customers to access a Green Deal Adviser Service; fully certified and Green Deal accredited Installers; with access to Green Deal Providers and Energy Companies to fund the improvements.
The Greenteam, a successful and experienced energy and renewable company, is aiming to boost the local economy and help create local jobs and apprenticeships by forming a Consortium of budding local Green Deal installers and other participants.

What is the Green Deal?
The Green Deal aims to retrofit up to 14million UK homes with energy saving measures by 2020.
There is a huge challenge to prepare in time for October 2012 launch. Although the final specification of requirements is still awaited, SMEs must plan now in order to get a share of the Green Deal market
With thousands of new low carbon jobs expected when Green Deal is rolled out in October 2012 and a £1.4bn cash injection into the economy, there will be many opportunities. Homeowners will benefit from energy efficient homes, lowering fuel bills and having warmer homes with no upfront cost. These benefits will translate to work for the construction industry by seeing a leap in demand for work.
