Carillion’s energy services business and Homebase will link-up with a local authority to make it as easy for residents to take up green measures such as insulation.
Households taking part will be offered a one month’s council tax holiday or vouchers to spend in store.
Green Deal is due to start in Autumn 2012 and will allow households to invest in energy efficiency improvements at no upfront cost and repay through the expected savings on heating bills.
Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Chris Huhne said: “It’s great that high street names are getting involved at this early stage to road-test these exciting ideas about how to make it easier for people to take up the Green Deal and insulate their homes from rising energy prices.”
Paul Varley, Managing Director of Carillion Energy Services, added: “Green Deal is the flagship of the Government’s Energy Bill and will be a key driver in the transformation to low carbon living.
“We are therefore delighted to be working in partnership with Homebase to help shape its delivery.
“Carillion is focused on improving the living conditions of millions of households across the UK by making their homes warmer and more affordable to heat.
“We have been doing this at scale for more than 20 years by delivering energy efficiency solutions in partnership with a range of organizations and we are well placed to continue this collaborative approach through Green Deal.”
