ECA CEO responds to Green Deal announcement

2 Nov 10 Steve Bratt, Group CEO of the Electrical Contractors Association (ECA): Today said "We are delighted to see that the Government is placing appropriate emphasis on the skills required to deliver the Green Deal Scheme."

“Consumer confidence will be key to the take-up of the Green Deal- confidence that energy-saving measures and renewable technologies are fitted safely and correctly the first time round* and confidence that the right solution has been recommended and fitted. 

“As electrical contractors are the front line troops who will be responsible for installing much of this technology, it is encouraging that Government has stipulated that under the terms of the Scheme only ‘appropriately qualified installers’ will be allowed to install energy-saving technology.” 

“We believe that this Scheme is vital to helping the UK meet its tough energy efficiency targets and will play a pivotal role in driving the retrofitting agenda, as well as stimulating economic growth and creating new jobs. ”
