Date: 21 September 2011
Energy-saving measures such as solar panels and double glazing fail to reduce bills in up to a quarter of homes, an official report has found.

A trial of the Coalition’s £3 billion “green deal”, under which householders can take out government-backed loans of up to £10,000 to improve energy efficiency, showed that in some cases bills rose despite the measures.

The scheme is being championed by David Cameron and will be available to up to 14 million homes from next year.

But a trial of 311 households, conducted by companies including B&Q and British Gas, found that 26 per cent of those who measured their energy usage experienced no reduction in bills.
