Hello, I’am Steve
The green dial installer that I am talking to is trying to sell me external wall insulation and solar panels.
Do you know can you just have the walls done and still get the top rate grant.

Hello mark
Thank you for getting back to me. I think I will look at getting the external walls insulated and forget abut the solar panels.
The walls will give me warmth and less heating cost, etc. Straight away.
Solar panels are a long term investment and you do not get the benefits straight away.

Thanks Steve

Hello Steve
Having external wall insulation and solar panels installed will be very expensive even with the maximum amount of Green Deal Cash-back.

The maximum amount of cash-back is £7600 when you choose multiple items.

The maximum amount of cash-back for External Insulation is £6000 leaving you only £1,600 toward the cost of Solar Panels.

Solar panels themselves can be very expensive so in reality £1,600 towards the cost of these will not go very far.

It is more cost effective for you to just choose EWI with the £6000 cash-back +£100 toward your Green Deal assessment and if you have lived in your house for less than 1 year, you are entitled to an extra £500 cash-back bonus.

I would seriously consider the extra cost involved in choosing Solar Panels and and also check if your roof is south facing for maximum sun exposure.
