A chance to win a £10K eco home makeover for Brighton and Hove residents
5:30pm Friday 1st February 2013 in News
Ten residents are being offered the chance to have a £10,000 eco makeover of their home.
Brighton and Hove City Council is giving away thousands of pounds of home-energy improvements to each of ten lucky residents as part of its Green Deal Pioneer Places scheme.
Improvements installed for free could include new boilers, wall and loft insulation, secondary glazing and draught-proofing.
One hundred householders could also receive a free Green Deal energy assessment worth up to £150 to identify energy waste and indicate ways to save money on energy bills.
The project has been made possible after the council, working with partners Brighton and Hove 10:10, Low Carbon Trust and The Green Building Partnership recently applied for £221,000 of Government funding.
The scheme will be documented, following some of the ten householders as they have the home-energy improvement work done.
Flemmich Webb, the chair of Brighton and Hove 10:10, said: “This is fantastic news for residents.
“With energy bills increasing every year, it’s vital that we help people improve their homes so they waste less energy and cut their gas and electricity bills.”
Anyone interested in taking part should fill in an application form at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/greendeal or call 01273 411143 before February 11.
