Eco-Energy Scheme Could Create Hundreds Of Jobs
9:06am 28th July 2012
Hundreds of jobs could be created in Cornwall by a new eco-energy scheme.
The Green Deal will offer families a loan to put in stuff like solar panels and insulation and cut bills.
Tolvaddon firm Enact is helping to run it for the government in the Duchy.
Spokesperson Judith Ball explains how it would work: "What we would do is subcontract all of that work out to local suppliers so we're injecting work into the area. Energy assessors who become qualified to be a Green Deal assessor in the local area can be employed by us to do the work".
