DECC tries cashback boost for Green Deal

The government hopes a cashback scheme can help tackle low levels of public interest in the Green Deal, but extra drivers appear to be needed

The energy and climate department (DECC) has launched a £125m cashback fund to boost consumer uptake of its Green Deal home energy efficiency scheme.

Launched on 19 October, it is open to householders in England and Wales from 28 January 2013 until April 2014. A similar £23m scheme will be launched in Scotland shortly.

Money will be paid according to the type of energy efficiency measure installed. For example, people installing new boilers are eligible for up to £270. There is a limit of £1,000 per household.
