12:00pm Sunday 3rd February 2013 in News
SAVE energy and money at the same time as part of the Green Deal.
Warrington Borough Council has secured £79,750 from the Government which will go towards promoting energy efficiency in the town.
The Green Deal is a new way to pay for energy-saving home improvements and to make homes more comfortable and the cash will fund energy efficiency tests to see where energy savings can be made.
Clr David Keane, executive board member for environment and public protection, said: “At a time when energy bills continue to increase, this exciting project will raise awareness on what you can do to improve your home and save on your energy bill.
“Under the Green Deal you can have energy efficiency works carried out with these costs paid from the savings made on your energy bill.”
The project is a partnership between the council, Golden Gates Housing Trust, local community group Low Carbon Lymm and Energy Projects Plus.
