DECC figures confirm painfully slow increase in Green Deal Plans
A total of 1,173 households had Green Deal Plans in progress at the end of October compared to 954 by the end of September, according to the latest report from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
However, there are still only 219 ‘live’ Green Deal Plans reported up to the end of October having installed at least one measure in each property. The total number of measures installed using Green Deal finance was 481 up to the end of October.
Boilers accounted for 37 per cent of measures installed using Green Deal finance, photovoltaics were 16 per cent of all measures, heating controls were 15 per cent and solid wall insulation was 14 per cent.
The monthly report on the Domestic Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation in Great Britain released yesterday presents the latest statistics up to the end of October on the Green Deal (GD) and the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) up to the end of September.
It reveals that 311,250 measures were installed in around 273,000 properties through ECO, Cashback and Green Deal to the end of September, up from 251,655 measures to the end of August. The large majority of installed measures (98 per cent) were delivered through ECO.
A total of 101,851 GD Assessments were lodged up to the end of October, up from 85,177 at end of September. The 16,674 GD Assessments in October was 19 per cent higher than in September (13,967), which in turn was seven per cent higher than the number in August.
Up to the end of October 112 Green Deal Providers had been authorised.
