Webcast: The Green Deal explained
Our live webTV show with George Clarke will discuss the Green Deal and why it could be the most important mass home improvement programme for generations

Chances are you haven’t heard of the Green Deal yet, but a crucial consultation period for this Government initiative has now begun. It plans to give homeowners the opportunity to make energy-efficient improvements without having to pay directly for the installation costs.
The new Green Deal is part of the Energy Bill and aims to help the UK meet its ambitious carbon emission targets. Cost is often the barrier to these home improvements, but through the Green Deal, energy efficient upgrades will be paid for over time from the savings made on the property’s energy bills, with no upfront costs to the homeowner.
So if you are a homeowner and would like to hear more about how to carry out green home improvements, then log onto to our webTV show where George Clarke will be talking about the Green Deal and the benefits it will bring to homeowners.
The precise measures of the bill will be ironed out during the Autumn consultation. However, a number of businesses including Pilkington Glass are now calling on the government to ensure all methods of energy saving upgrades are included: such as double glazing, loft and cavity wall insulation and energy efficient boilers.
If you’re interested in finding out what the Green Deal will mean for the average homeowner then log into our live show where the Restoration Man George Clarke and David Pinder from Pilkington Glass will be on hand to answer your questions and to discuss why it’s shaping up to be the most important mass home improvement programme for generations.
TV architect George Clarke and David Pinder from Pilkington Glass join us live today to discuss.
