The Neighbourhood Forum has been contacted by the Energy Wise Co Op Organisation who are working with the Government and Birmingham City Council to reduce energy costs for households by making our homes more efficient to keep warm. All the details you require are included below:
Birmingham Energy Savers : Saving energy. Saving money. Saving carbon: Community Engagement Programme
Birmingham Energy Savers has been set up by Birmingham City Council to implement the Green Deal, which is the Government’s programme to make our homes warmer and more comfortable, as well as reducing our carbon emissions.
Birmingham Energy Savers is working with Carillion to raise awareness of the scheme and to find households who would like their properties to benefit from energy saving improvements. These improvements will include:
- New Boiler
- Improved Heating controls
- Insulation for hard-to-treat cavity walls
- Loft insulation, including top up of existing insulation.
- Solid wall insulation
Anyone who thinks their home might benefit from any of these improvements is invited to apply.
Whatever your tenure, rental or owner-occupier, and whatever your income, you are eligible to apply for these improvements.
For those on means-tested benefits, there will be a 100% grant, and for others there will probably be 90% funding.
If you would like to receive more information about this programme phone email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 0800 917 5772
Please pass this information on to your friends, neighbours and work colleagues.
