About Toriga Energy
We signed a statement of intent (MOU) with DECC in April 2012 and are recognised as one of the Pioneer Green Deal Providers seeking to be the first to be able to offer Green Deal Plans. We've been working with MRASCo and the Energy companies to ensure the successful implementation of the Green Deal for Go Live in October 2012.
We agreed a Strategic Alliance with The Travis Perkins Group in April 2012 that hope to provide a comprehensive Green Deal proposition for consumers and the trade from assessment, product specification, financing and installation.
We also have a partnership with PPL training to deliver Green Deal Accredited training for advisors and installers. This will include specific training on the Toriga Platform and iPad app.
We have developed an integrated Green Deal Business Process that delivers an end-to-end solution in a fully accredited environment.
We engage directly with consumers and are building a network of Green Deal Accredited Assessors and Installers who are trusted and support the local communities.
To ensure that Toriga will be able to write the most competitively priced Green Deal Plans and to ensure that these are installed with the least inconvenience to the consumer we rely heavily on technology to underpin these processes which run on the Toriga IT Platform.
We only use Green Deal Accredited Assessors, Advisors and Installers. All our installations through our Green Deal Plans will be warranted in line with The Green Deal Code of Practice.
Our IT systems are hosted in an ISO 27001 environment.
