On the 23rd July 2015, DECC (the Department of Energy and Climate Change) announced it was ending funding for the Green Deal scheme. No more applications are being considered at this time. Government ECO Grants and RHI applications are still being accepted.
The Green Deal Cash-back Scheme enable UK households to reclaim a portion of investments made in energy saving measures taken like double glazing or draught proofing.
In 2013 the Government brought in the Green Deal scheme to enable UK homes to install key energy saving improvements by lending the money to undertake the measures. This is paid back over a period of 10 – 25 years by adding a small surcharge to the energy bills. The repayments however should be smaller than the energy savings made so the overall monthly costs should not increase.
