Tucked away at the foot of a "Do remember, it can get hot in the summer - even in the UK" tale currently up on the Beeb news page, some splendid stats which suggest that so far, there is probably no need to get unduly worked up about Green Deal-improved homes "overheating" just yet:
Only four people have signed up to the Green Deal since it was launched six months ago but Decc says that number is expected to increase with more finance in place.Which is not to say that the Green Deal isn't a success, it has lead to the creation of some new jobs - Green Deal Assessors - and according to the DECC's own website they have accredited 319 companies to carry these assessments out. A full listing is available via this handy webpage.
In total it said there had been 38,259 Green Deal assessments, where customers are given initial advice about what energy improvements they might be eligible for.
Of those, 241 households have confirmed they would like to proceed with work.
