|If you have not already done so, you should now arrange for your pre-install Green Deal Advice Report to be completed for your property (we recommend you get 3 quotes) and decide what recommendations you want to implement for your home. The measures you wish to install must be recommended on your Green Deal Advice Report, so please make sure you have this carried out before starting any work. For an example of what a Green Deal Advice Report looks like, please click here.|
|Your cashback voucher will then be sent to you via e-mail (or post if you don't have an e-mail address). Please check the eligibility criteria and terms and conditions to confirm you are eligible for the cashback scheme.|
|Proceed with works (we recommend you get 3 quotes) and make sure your installer completes the installer section of the cashback voucher once work is complete. Please note you must use a Green Deal certified installer to carry out the work. You will need to get the works completed within 16 weeks of the date of your voucher.|
|Pay your installer for the work|
|Arrange for an EPC to be completed for your property to prove that works have been completed. This may automatically happen if you are also taking out Green Deal finance.|
|Send your completed cashback voucher and invoices to EST. If these are satisfactory we will process your voucher for payment.
