U.K. Says 1,803 Homes Assessed For Green Deal Efficiency Program

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- The U.K. Department of Energy and Climate Change said 1,803 homes have been assessed for its so-called Green Deal program on energy efficiency since it started on Jan. 28, according to an e-mailed statement today.

The department didn’t say how many households have taken up an efficiency program after the assessments. Separately, the government said 26.9 million pounds ($40.2 million) worth of contracts have been signed under its Energy Company Obligation, a subsidy from energy suppliers to poorer households that will be recouped by charges spread across al bills.

The Green Deal program aims to make the nation’s 26.9 million homes more energy efficient through measures such as insulation and double glazing that would be paid for via a charge added to energy bills. The goal is for the charge to be smaller than the savings that result from the measures.
