Time is running out for Derbyshire Dales residents to take advantage of lofty savings on their energy bills.
In the past year Derbyshire Dales District Council has helped local people save over £43,000 in energy bills and is urging local householders and private tenants to sign up to a scheme for free and discounted loft insulation 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:
The recent weather, which has felt more like October than July, should prompt local people to prepare for winter now to save cash when you really need the energy.
