Green Deal: energy saving for your home

Skip to contents of guide

Improvements and benefits to your home

Any household with an electricity meter (including prepayment meters) in England, Scotland or Wales can use the scheme.

Both the landlord and the tenant must agree to the improvements if the building is rented.

Eligible improvements

You can use the Green Deal for a range of different energy saving measures including:

  • replacing windows and doors
  • installing secondary glazing
  • using energy efficient lighting
  • insulating your loft or walls
  • adding draught proofing
  • upgrading your heating
  • generating renewable energy from sources such as wind or solar power

But only if your Green Deal assessment recommends them.
