Green Dale

Technologies in Detail

The Green Deal is focused on energy efficiency measures which meet the golden rule, that is, the expected financial savings must be greater than the costs attached to the energy bill. The Green Deal finance extends to other low carbon energy technologies, such as microgeneration and combined heat and power technologies.

Energy Efficiency Measures to be coved by green deal to include but not exclusive to:

Solar PV – The engine of a solar PV system are its photovoltaic cells, these cells are capable of converting light into an electric current. The electricity generated by the solar PV system is automatically used directly to power a property with any excess being automatically sold straight back to the supplier. Any shortfall of power, such as peak use times or at night, is topped up by the supplier. Installations through the Green Deal are eligible for the Feed in Tariff Learn More...

Ground and air source heat pumps - Heat pumps use the latent energy in the ground or outside air to provide low cost heating and hot water for virtually any type of property. They use the constant latent energy available in the outside air or the ground with a refrigerant circuit, the heat generated is used to create hot water/air.

Biomass Boilers - Wood-fuelled heating systems, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers. Although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is often cheaper than other heating options and the carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel. Installations through the Green Deal are eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive Learn More...

Solar Thermal – Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.

Wind Turbines – A wind turbine is a device that converts the kinetic energy held within wind, aka wind energy, into mechanical energy or “wind power”. If the resulting mechanical energy is used to produce electricity via a generator, the device is called a wind turbine or wind power plant.

Loft Insulation – On average 25% of heat is lost through the roof space of the property. The installation of loft insulation drastically reduces this heat loss and subsequently the amount of energy needed to heat your property, keeping it warmer for longer.

Cavity Wall Insulation – Cavity Wall Insulation – On average 30% of heat is lost through the walls of the property. Wall insulation can considerably improve the warmth of your home. Cavity wall insulation is suitable for most houses built after 1930 and can be carried out quickly and efficiently, usually from outside your property.

External Wall Insulation – Houses built Pre 1930, more often than not, have solid walls. This type of construction is significantly less efficient than cavity walls. Due to the nature of the build, insulation can be carried out either on the outside or inside of the property.

Windows – By replacing windows with double or triple glazed windows, or installing secondary glazing to existing windows, reduces heat loss and reduces outside noise.
