Six months left to make lofty savings

Time is running out for Dales householders to take advantage of lofty savings on their energy bills.

In the past year Derbyshire Dales District Council has helped people save over £43,000 in energy bills and is now urging homeowners and private tenants to sign up for free and discounted loft and cavity wall insulation.

Last autumn 326 Dales households prepared for winter and beat rising energy prices by applying for subsidised loft and cavity wall insulation, resulting in an annual CO2 saving of 220 Tonnes.

Chairman of Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Environment Committee, Councillor Steve Bull, said: “Funding for the free and discounted scheme the district council runs in partnership with Warmstreets ends in six months’ time, so our advice is call us now.”
