Micro combined heat and power will be eligible for the Green Deal, which will be available to all sectors, including social housing. It can be financed with Green Deal finance if it has been recommended during the Green Deal assessment for a given property that it can achieve savings on the energy bill.

The first 30,000 domestic sized installations (=2 kW) of micro combined heat and power are also supported by the feed-in tariff under a pilot scheme.
