PENDLE MP Andrew Stephenson wants residents to take up energy-efficiency improvements on their home with the Green Deal.

Households carrying out energy efficiency improvements can now get more money back to offset the cost of the work. The new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund issued £16.5 million in the first three weeks.

Mr Stephenson said: “I am very pleased people across England and Wales are now able to get up to £7,600 back through the new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund so they can take control of their bills and have warmer, greener homes. The average annual bill saving from installing major measures such as solid wall insulation in a three-bed semi-detached house is £270, while savings from other measures, such as upgrading a boiler, can knock around £100 off a customer’s bill.”

Domestic energy customers can get up to £1,000 for installing two measures from an approved list; and/or up to £6,000 for installing solid wall insulation and up to £100 refunded for their Green Deal Assessment.
