Following the Chancellor's announcement of £200 million additional capital to encourage uptake of Green Deal in the 2011 autumn statement, the Government is using £125 million of this to fund a generous Cashback scheme to be claimed by those who take up Green' Deal from January 2013.

Other uses of the additional capital include £12 million of funding that has been allocated to seven cities across England to help pilot Green Deal in their regions.

The Government does not have any plans to introduce a council tax rebate for homes participating in the Green Deal.
