Extra £100m for the Green Deal
An extra £100 million is going towards the Government’s household energy efficiency scheme, Green Deal, reports Energy Live News.
The Treasury has opened the purse strings to fund a new phase of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund. It will be open to applications from householders by the end of November.
People have six months to redeem the vouchers and DECC has not revealed what it will do with any unredeemed vouchers.
In the first phase of GDHIF, 19,930 vouchers issued. Of those, so far 1,205 vouchers have been paid for 1,573 measures installed before the end of August. These totted up to £5.4m.
