Green Loans for Greener Homes

Today it was announced that a new Government scheme will allow for Green Loans.

These loans will look to help households become more energy efficient by the installation of eco-measures technologies such as  technology such as solar panels and others.

It will work as a Pay As You Save programme (already tested)so it can be paid back over a long period where  savings on energy bills will outweigh payback costs.

Overall it will look to help reduce carbon emissions, making homes cleaner and GREENER.

  1. Homes constructed with ICFs (Insulated Concrete Forms), are homes built with a super insulated concrete shell, which spans from the basement floor to the eaves. This superior, insulated shell makes for more comfortable climates. These homes can be constructed more quickly while using much less lumber, helping to preserve forests. When finished, these homes use 40% – 60% less energy to operate, saving homeowners money. By consuming less energy, ICF homes put less of a demand on our environment’s quickly dwindling fossil fuels.

  2. Thanks for posting this information, it’s very useful and I hope of a great help to those looking for a greener home.
