The Department estimates that around 520,000 homes (or 260,000 per year) will be treated with 365,000 insulated, between April 2015 and the end of the current stage of ECO (in March 2017). An additional 545,000 homes (or over 360,000 a year) will be treated, with around 500,000 insulated, during the 18 month ECO extension (running between April 2017 and September 2018).

Estimates for the number of homes insulated in the period post September 2018 will be published alongside the consultation later this year.
