DECC insists Green Deal is boosting energy efficient uptake

The DECC claims more than half of households (56%) who have had a Green Deal assessment have already installed at least one energy efficiency measure, writes Energy Live News.

A new survey of 500 homes that had an assessment also found a further 6% are in the process of having installments while 19% said they plan to have something installed.

The figure is in stark contrast to statistics released last month which revealed only 132 homes signed up to the Green Deal and one finally went live eight months after it was officially launched.
