  • The Government considered processing applications from people who have now been shut out of the State’s deep retrofit scheme before deciding to leave them unfunded.
  • Among the options considered in June by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland and the Department of Environment was to “close the 2019 programme immediately to new applications, but proceed to process applications already submitted”.
  • The authority, in conjunction with the department, ultimately decided to close the scheme, leaving these open applications in limbo.
