Greg Barker on Green Deal bid to cut energy bills

The government has launched a scheme aiming to improve energy efficiency and cut the annual household energy bill of £1,400.

Greg Barker MP said the 7% finance deal under the Green Deal was fixed for 20 years and cheaper than High Street lending, claiming it offered a "really good deal for long-term fair finance".

The energy and climate change minister said it would offer "unprecedented choice and empowerment to consumers worried about rising energy bills".
