Section 8: Confirmation of plan

44.This section sets out the conditions that need to be met in order for a green deal plan to be confirmed in accordance with section 1(5)(b). Subsections (2) and (3) contain the first condition, which requires an energy supplier to notify the bill payer, within a time period set by the framework regulations, that payments for energy efficiency improvements are to be included in the energy bills for the property from a specified date, as well as the amount of those payments and time period to which those repayments relate.

45.Subsection (4) contains the second condition, which is that as soon as is practicable after the improvements have been installed, the green deal provider must ensure either that certain information about the green deal plan is included in a new type of document to be used by green deal providers specifically for this purpose or that such information is added to an existing document. The Secretary of State will specify which one or more of these actions are required in the framework regulations.
