Time running out to get free energy assessments
Residents have less than a week to sign up for a free energy saving assessment that could help them reduce their household bills.
There are a limited number of free Green Deal assessments – worth £140 – left for residents who privately rent or own their home. These will be offered on a first come, first served, basis.
The offer – part of the Government’s Green Deal scheme – involves a home assessment being carried out in order to establish the most cost-effective measures to improve the household’s energy efficiency, such as better insulation, boiler upgrades and/or double glazing.
Once an assessment is complete, a Green Deal Advice Report will be issued, which explains what improvements can be made, estimates by how much bills could be reduced and details what financial options are available – but there is no obligation to have any work carried out.
Wandsworth’s environment spokesman, Councillor Jonathan Cook, said:
“The assessments help residents make positive changes without any immediate financial outlay and with installation costs ultimately being covered through lower energy bills.”
Residents interested in signing up for an assessment on their home have until Monday, October 21, to do so.
Anyone interested should call Climate Energy, which manages the council-backed offer, on 0800 035 2327. Alternatively, visit www.climateenergy.org.uk for more information.
