“It’s great that May was such a successful month for the Green Deal with 23,811 assessments carried out – the second highest rate ever. And it’s even more encouraging that 76% of people who’ve had a Green Deal Assessment are taking action.
“In the first seven days alone, 1736 applications for the new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund saw 2.61 million fly out the door for energy efficient home improvements.”
