  • The Green Deal Again

    It has been reported in the media that insulation projects have dropped 97% under Green Deal, this does not surprise me, it does not take a rocket scientist to work out that if the take up was rather low when it was offered free from the energy companies (although we all contributed via our energy bills) why would they think it would grow when people have to pay for it.
