The monthly Green Deal/Energy Company Obligation (ECO) statistical release published by the Department of Energy and Climate Change presents the number of measures installed under the rural sub-obligation of the Carbon Saving Communities Obligation (CSCO) strand of ECO. The latest release was published on 23 September:

A further 13,068 rural sub-obligation measures up to July 2014 were reported by energy companies in anticipation of amendments to the ECO Order, giving a total of 14,341. Please note that these are provisional figures for measures not yet notified but installed since 1 April.

We do not collect information as to what proportion of total households in rural areas have benefitted from CSCO measures as we do not have data on the total populations in those areas. Nor do we have information on the proportion of funding contributed by households in rural areas via their fuel bills.
