Toriga is delighted to be the first Green Deal Provider to officially sign a Green Deal Plan with a UK homeowner.

Founded in 2011 with its sole focus on becoming a Green Deal Provider, Torgia agreed a partnership with the Travis Perkins Group (TP) last year to provide a comprehensive Green Deal proposition for consumers and the trade from assessment and product specification to financing and installation.

All materials for the project will be provided by brands within TP.

Paul Joyner, director of Sustainable Building Solutions, specialist division of TP, said: “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 aim to ensure that we write the most competitively priced Green Deal Plans and that these are installed with the best products available, making it as convenient as possible for consumers.”

Torgia has worked with the Department of Energy & Climate Change and other government departments to ensure that the Green Deal is workable, consumer friendly and accessible to everybody, and is confident it will be a success.

The company has a growing network of assessors up and down the country and has also partnered with PPL training to deliver Green Deal Accredited training for advisors and installers.
