The Department for Energy and Climate Change have announced figures for the take-up of the Green Deal for February 2013
After a very slow start in January 2013 the Green Deal seems to have finally hit the public consciousness, and people are now booking assessments to see if it is worth them carrying out energy-saving works to their homes.
According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), nearly two thousand property assessments were carried out by the end of February this year. There was also an increase in contractors registering to carry out works under the Green Deal. There are now forty firms registered as providers, and 629 installers who have been approved for the scheme.
