Energy Act 2011

Section 6: Consents and redress etc

41.Subsections (1) and (2) state that the framework regulations may make provision for dealing with situations where, at the time the green deal plan is entered into, the energy bill payer and the improver are different persons, for example where a property owner is the improver and the occupier is the bill payer. In particular, the regulations may provide for it to be a term of the plan that the bill payer has consented to the green deal plan. The regulations may also make provision for circumstances where the bill payer at the time the green deal plan was entered into and the bill payer at any other time (known as the ‘subsequent bill payer’) are different. Subsection (1) is subject to section 1(6).

42.Subsection (4) enables the Secretary of State to provide for redress in cases where a permission or consent mentioned in section 5(2)(b) was not obtained or was obtained improperly. A non-exhaustive list of the types of redress which the Secretary of State may make provision for is set out in subsection (5).
