The latest monthly statistics from the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) show that almost 1,800 Solid Wall Insulations (SWI) installations were completed under the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) in April, bringing the total number so far to just over 16,500.
By the end of April, over £96 million had been paid out of the combined pot of £220 million for the first three phases of the scheme.
The number of Green Deal (GD) assessments decreased by 40% in April which DECC attributed to the Easter break; however, the number of GD Plans increased by 11%. 22% of GD Plans were ‘new’ (quote accepted), 19% were ‘pending’ (Plan signed) and 59% were ‘live’ (all measures installed).
Just under 4,400 SWI measures were installed under ECO in March, more than double the number of installations in February, as energy companies tried to complete their carbon allocation before ECO 2.0.
