Over 1 million energy efficiency measures installed under ECO and Green Deal
The number of energy efficiency measures installed under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and Green Deal schemes has topped 1 million in under two years, a recent report was able to reveal.
Under the aforementioned two schemes, new boilers, windows and insulation were delivered to around 830,000 extra houses, meaning warmer homes and lowers bills.
In addition, a new £25 million grant announced as part of the Autumn statement will see an extra 8,000 low-income households benefit from first-time central heating off gas grid homes.
Liberal Democrat Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change Ed Davey said:
“We’ve taken money off people’s energy bills this winter, but to cut bills permanently people need energy efficient homes.
“Thanks to our ECO and Green Deal policies one million energy efficiency measures such as new boilers and insulation have now been installed in less than two years, making homes across the UK warmer and cutting household bills for this Christmas, and every Christmas.”
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
