Earlier this week DECC released the second monthly statistics for Green Deal. 

They show that 9,268 Green Deal Assessments have been completed and lodged in total, with 7,465 in March alone. It is expected that many of these may be free assessments, with 2000 paid for assessments available in Surrey alone. However, it still shows a huge increase in interest and is a great start. 

The number of Green Deal Assessors was up from 618 to 1,003 and the number of Green Deal Advice Organisations increased by 31 to 108.

We believe that DCLG should be concentrating on low levels of compliance in domestic rental and commercial sectors in particular and that this would be a better way of maintaining the income necessary for the landmark register rather than by increasing the fee for those who are compliant.
