05-04-2012The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has announced that Yorkshire Energy Services is to become one of its Pioneer Green Deal Providers and join a small number of companies from across the UK in the pilot programme.
YES Become Government Endorsed Green Deal Provider
Yorkshire Energy Services will play an active role in the Green Deal in providing and managing the finance needed for householders and small businesses to access effective energy saving services.
The highly anticipated Green Deal is set to launch in October 2012 and will help thousands of residents save energy through domestic installations (e.g. insulation, central heating, renewable technologies etc) with no upfront costs. Unlike other finance programmes, repayments are linked to the participant’s energy bills and set at a lower rate than the money they saved on energy over a fixed period. Customers are therefore able to save money and improve their properties efficiency without breaking the bank.
Chief Executive of Yorkshire Energy Services, William Edrich, is delighted to support Green Deal and work in partnership with DECC on the initial developments of the programme. “It is an honour to work with DECC representing the SME’s within the Green Deal Pilot. We have over 11 years experience delivering innovative and ground breaking energy efficiency schemes like the Green Deal and look forward to demonstrating our expertise in order to shape and model an effective Green Deal process. YES work within the local community and excel in the delivery of community based work. Our ethos as a community interest company is to invest profits made back into schemes to further assist communities and are committed to supporting the local economy.”
Yorkshire Energy Services are also currently undertaking Green Deal Advisory accreditation and a number of staff are being trained to become qualified Green Deal assessors. Working with Stroma Certification, this accreditation will enable the organisation to offer customers an inclusive Green Deal service from assessment through to provision.
