11:50am Saturday 1st September 2012 in Letters
Sir.-While the chill of winter may still be a little way off, the deadline is looming for Hampshire residents to take advantage of a free insulation offer to keep their homes warm, save money on their fuel bills, cut CO2 emissions and create new jobs in Hampshire’s local economy.
The Insulate Hampshire offer of free cavity wall and loft insulation where less than 60mm (2.5 inches) of loft insulation currently exists, is open to all homeowners and tenants of private rented properties.
Anyone interested in taking up the offer has until September 30 to apply, with installations taking place until November 30. So far more than 17,000 households have taken up the offer with over 10,000 measures installed so far.
With funding from ScottishPower, Insulate Hampshire is backed by the local authorities that make up Hampshire Senate (Hampshire County Council and nine district, borough and city councils).
The Senate’s aims are to achieve better working, efficiency and co-ordination between public services to provide high quality, efficient services for residents.
To find out more visit insulatehampshire.co.uk or call free on 0800 952 0037.
Under Insulate Hampshire, ScottishPower are also offering those who are on benefits up to £200 in high street vouchers; £100 in vouchers for each installed measure of cavity wall and/or loft insulation.
