Green Deal

Along with many thousands of other landlords I own and rent out properties that were built up to and over a hundred years ago, properties that after spending many thousands on them to make them "greener" would never be able to get to an EPC rating of C during the next few years.
What do you advise that I, and all the others, do about this situation, bearing in mind that none of us has the funds to spend £3500 approx on each house, but a rating of less than C would render these properties at the same time both uninhabitable and unsaleable?
There are several million of these Victorian/Edwardian terraces across the country, many of which are mortgaged. This has huge ramifications for the finance sector, let alone the health and robustness of the PRS, yet you seem to taking little notice of this situation.
Please advise.
