Travis Perkins Group and Toriga become Green Deal providers

Toriga will be the first Green Deal provider to officially sign a Green Deal Plan with a UK homeowner.

As part of its partnership with Travis Perkins, all materials for the project will be provided by the leading brands within the group.

The agreement with Toriga was established by Sustainable Building Solutions, the specialist division of the Travis Perkins Group, in 2012.

Sustainable building solutions director Paul Joyner (pictured) said: “The Travis Perkins Group is open to business from the Green Deal – it’s fantastic that homeowners have started signing up on day one and we’re looking forward to more interest during the coming months.

“Our plan is best-placed to satisfy installers and contractors due to the breadth of our ‘whole house’ product range, from boilers to wall insulation, from renewables to lighting.”

Richard Hildyard of Toriga added: “This is an exciting time for us; we’ve worked very hard for two years to get to this position and we’re thrilled that we signed the first Green Deal Plan on the day that the scheme launched.

“We have worked extensively with the DECC and other government departments to ensure that the Green Deal is workable, consumer friendly and accessible to everybody and are confident that it will be a success.”

  • We were expecting a lot of activity resulting from Green Deal but we have seen precisely nothing. We had geared up at with a view to completing a range of energy saving projects but so far nothing doing. IMHO the Green Deal is worthy but misguided; the fact that people have to "borrow" just puts them off. Just the use of the word "loan" has a negative perception that stops people even looking further into it. It should be re examined and re launched with a different "spin".
