517,000 households have been helped to improve their homes to make them more energy efficient through the Green Deal or Energy Company Obligation (ECO) since the schemes started last year.
The Green Deal and ECO were introduced by the government to help people take control of their energy use and reduce their bills. By offering tailored advice about how to improve properties and ways to make this affordable, the Green Deal helps households to buy less energy while making it easier to keep their homes warm at the same time.
Up to the end of February this year,163,000 Green Deal assessments have taken place. The statistics also show 517,000 households had work done up to the end of January. This is over half way to the government’s target of one million homes being upgraded through ECO and the Green Deal by April 2015.
