1,803 homes assessed for Green Deal scheme
14 March 2013
"Making our homes energy efficient is a great way to slash fuel bills, have a warm place to live and cut UK carbon emissions.
"Energy bills are soaring thanks to our reliance on fossil fuels and the costs of treating illnesses caused by cold homes is putting a heavy burden on the NHS - the case for better insulation has never been stronger.
"The Green Deal is heading for trouble without lower interest rates, more money to tackle fuel poverty and tough regulations on landlords renting out dangerously cold homes.
"1,803 homes have been assessed, not actually insulated - it's still early days, but the initial signs aren't good."
