Wilmslow-based energy assessment company, One Green Place, is planning for expansion following increased demand due to the launch of the Green Deal.
Green Deal is the Government’s strategy to improve the energy efficiency of the UK’s homes by offering loans for home improvements, paid back through savings on energy bills. One Green Place is one of only 58 approved Green Deal Assessment companies and has been inundated with home assessment bookings since the launch of Green Deal two weeks ago.
The company has already taken more than 6,000 assessment enquiries and is also working with three of the sixteen Green Deal delivery partner housing associations in Manchester, as part of the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Go Early Green Deal.
Annmarie Blomfield, (pictured) managing director of One Green Place, said: “Demand for Green Deal home assessments has been enormous and people like the fact we offer a free online home energy survey, which gives them an idea of the home improvement measures their property will need ahead of a home assessment.
“We have already added more than 20 people to our customer services team this month to meet demand and we’re actively looking to increase our national panel of energy assessors from 300 to 700.”
One Green Place offers an independent Green Deal home assessment for £115 which outlines the energy saving measures which will have the biggest impact on reducing energy bills. Green Deal home improvements can only proceed once a payment plan has been created following an assessment.
Annmarie added: “We have been providing energy performance certificates to homeowners and estate agents for six years and have a network of surveyors right across the country.
“However, demand for Green Deal home assessments has been so great we are in the enviable position of looking to expand the team at our Wilmslow headquarters. The Government is committed to making the Green Deal a success and early indications are that it will be hugely popular.”
