To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change whether Green Deal assessments will be able to combine Green Deal finance with funding from the renewable heat incentive and feed-in tariffs.

The Green Deal Assessment will set out those measures expected to be eligible for Green Deal finance and the likely savings the household or business can expect to make. This is intended to provide the consumer with information to help them make an informed decision about the most appropriate financing route.

Where the assessment shows that Green Deal finance will only cover part of the cost of the measure, the consumer may wish to access other available sources of finance as appropriate to cover the remaining cost.

Our ambition is that in future it should be possible for somebody installing Microgeneration measures to receive both Green Deal loans and Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) or Feed-in-tariff (FIT) payments. However, this cannot be confirmed until current state aid discussions with the European Commission have concluded.
