The original budget for Low Carbon Buildings Programme Phase 1 was £30 million. £1.5 million was brought forward for use on the Clear Skies and Solar PV Major Demonstration Programmes to smooth the transition between the legacy schemes, and the new scheme.

From the remaining £28.5 million, £4.3 million has been committed to household and community projects, which is 15 per cent. of the budget. Of this amount, £0.2 million has been paid out in grants to date, which is 1 per cent. of the budget.
