Impressive start for Green Deal

More than 1,800 property assessments have been carried out in the first month of the government's Green Deal scheme.

Figures released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change show that 1,803 people have had their home assessed for funding since the initiative was launched in England and Wales on January 28th.

The Green Deal is a government scheme that allows homeowners to make improvements that will increase the energy efficiency of their property. They can then pay off the cost of the work in instalments through their electricity bills.

This is of particular interest to letting agents and landlords, as it allows them to improve the Energy Performance Certificate rating of the homes in their portfolio.

The Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said the scheme had got off to "an excellent start".

He commented: "We're seeing clear signs of a promising new market gathering momentum.

"In little more than a month, there have been 1,803 Green Deal assessments and that shows genuine interest from consumers."
