People rewarded to save on energy bills

By Wesleyan

Consumers are being offered incentives to save money on their heating bills, under a revived Government scheme.

Last year's Green Deal Home Improvement Fund paid people to fit energy-saving measures, aimed at reducing their heating bills.

These included cavity wall insulation, boilers, double glazing and other energy-saving steps.

It is due to re-start a week on Monday (March 16) under the scheme's third phase, Ed Davey, the Energy Secretary, has announced.

Each household can apply for a maximum of £5,600 worth of vouchers towards installing solid-wall insulation and a choice of two steps from a sanctioned Government list. The offer is open until the fund runs out.

But ministers have warned that the £70 million kitty could be gone in little over a week.

Householders claimed £120 million towards energy-saving steps during the initial six-week scheme last summer.

Similarly, the second funding phase, worth a total of £30 million, was snapped up within a day of its relaunch.
