Travis Perkins Group has formed an alliance with Toriga Energy to deliver what it described as a comprehensive Green Deal proposition for consumers and the trade.
The alliance will enable the two companies to provide an integrated Green Deal proposition from specification through to finance, assessment and installation.
Toriga Energy has been appointed as one of the first 22 of the coalition government’s Green Deal providers, capable of offering energy-efficiency packages when the scheme launches later this year.
Under the terms of this strategic alliance, Travis Perkins will provide in-branch consumer and trade marketing within its Wickes branches, and trade marketing in Travis Perkins merchant branches.
Technical support, Green Deal accreditation and training provision for assessors and installers will be offered by Sustainable Building Solutions, a specialist division of Travis Perkins Group. Supply and distribution of measures will be provided by Travis Perkins Group companies.
Toriga Energy will provide finance provision, systems development and integration. In addition, Toriga will provide recruitment and management of assessors and installers, along with Toriga software and systems training for both assessors and installers.
Paul Joyner, director of Sustainable Building Solutions, said: “The combination of Travis Perkins Group’s ability to deliver technical expertise, product and a logistics solution, alongside Toriga’s ability to provide finance and assessment, can deliver a market-leading proposition within the emerging Green Deal market.”
Gary Bell, director at Toriga Energy, said: “This strategic alliance builds on our commitment of delivering a high-quality and professional experience across all elements of the Green Deal supply chain. We are delighted to be working with The Travis Perkins Group and together provide an industry-leading proposition to the consumer who can look forward to living in a more comfortable and energy efficient home.”
