ONLY three people have signed up to the Government’s flagship energy policy, The Sun can reveal.
In a huge embarrassment for ministers, just a handful of people had agreed by last month to pay off a green loan through their energy bills.
And one of those turns out to work for the Department of Energy.
Chancellor George Osborne has allocated £200million for the Green Deal scheme which encourages people to fit new boilers, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.
Industry sources say a total of 100 people have signed up to loans to be paid back over time.
