A South West renewable energy specialist, Enact Energy has become the first in Cornwall to achieve Green Deal Provider status from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) putting it at the forefront of multi-billion pound nationwide initiative to make homes across the UK more energy efficient.
The company, launched in 1996, has made over 300,000 energy efficiency upgrades to homes across the UK by installing solar power systems, cavity wall and loft insulation, and heating upgrades helping to save its customers millions of pounds in reduced energy bills. The company will now be able to offer access to Green Deal funding and finance options to homeowners across the South West and the rest of the UK.

Enact founder and Chief Executive Officer Adrian Wright said:“The Green Deal is the government’s new energy initiative which plans for the improvement of the nation’s energy efficient homes and we are delighted to have achieved official Green Deal Provider status which means we can play a full and central role in delivering all of the benefits that the Green Deal offers. To achieve this status we have had to undergo rigorous and stringent assessments so to now have it officially is great news.
“For homeowners it will mean providing everything from initial energy assessments to identify what their property needs, a full range of products to help make their home more efficient, access to Green Deal finance and energy supplier grant funding to help pay for these measures and management of the installations – which we will be delivering in conjunction with our network of fully approved local Green Deal Installers – who we will help become fully accredited.
“As a South West business that has operated, grown and remained in Cornwall since 1996 despite the business increasingly working nationwide, we are particularly pleased to become the first business in Cornwall to achieve Green Deal Provider status,” said Adrian.
Recently Enact helped a cooperative of local authorities and community groups led by North Devon Council to secure £500,000 worth of funding from DECC to kick start Green Deal in the South West
