It is of course the greens and environmentalists who have been screaming that the government must take action on fuel poverty. Something Must Be Done!
And now something is being done:
Even the companies involved in the green deal find it hard to explain how it will work. Here are some of the hoops needed to be jumped: to enter the scheme, you need a green-deal assessor who works for a green-deal adviser organisation to undertake a green-deal assessment of your house, which will result in a green-deal advisory report. This will be lodged with a green-deal provider who will devise a green-deal plan. The work will then be undertaken by a green-deal installer to standards overseen by the new green-deal oversight body.
Welcome to the world of government designed “solutions”.
It really would have been easier and more sensible just to stick on hte carbon tax and let people figure out their own solutions.
