Free Energy Saving Advice in W12
Energy advisors will visit 1,600 homes in Shepherd's Bush Green
Residents in Shepherd's Bush Green Ward are being offered a free home visit to help lower their utility bills by up to £160 a year.
The scheme is being carried out by part of the RE:NEW initiative, a London-wide scheme, run in collaboration with Hammersmith & Fulham Council to increase energy efficiency of homes in the capital.
This ward has been chosen because there is a good mix of tenures and has not benefited from previous schemes. Home visits are also available for a limited number of residents outside this ward.
The council has arranged for home energy advisers from Climate Energy to visit 1,600 homes, to advise residents on how they can improve the energy and water efficiency of their homes. A survey of the property will be carried out to find out how the home is heated and insulated to determine what energy saving devices can be installed.
A range of free energy and water saving devices, worth up to £100, can be installed which includes energy saving light bulbs, standby switches and an energy monitor to help see the electricity that is being used in the household.
Residents aged over 70 or those in receipt of income related benefits could be eligible for free cavity wall insulation and full loft insulation.
H&F Council's cabinet member for residents' services Greg Smith says: " At a time when energy costs are soaring, the RE:NEW scheme is a welcome initiative to help our residents save money on their bills."
