Green Deal Cashback

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.
