Good News on Green Deal

Marks & Spencer are in talks with the Government to take part in the Green Deal policy.

The policy is one I've championed a fair bit - essentially businesses will be encouraged to install energy efficient measures like loft insulation, double glazing, cavity wall insulation and solar panels. Householders will pay back the cost over 20 years making such changes much more affordable for your average home owner... and bringing Co2 savings, jobs and eventually lower bills with it.

Its hoped the scheme will create up to 100,000 jobs which is good news with Tesco, B&Q and British Gas also interested in getting involved. Hopefully it will be up and running by autumn 2012.
