Investment reduces a plethora of energy bills

Thousands of homes in the North East are enjoying warmer homes thanks to a landmark initiative being delivered by British Gas in partnership with nine local authorities.

Warm Up North has delivered £4.9million worth of energy-saving measures across 3,690 homes since its launch in 2013. As a result, these householders have benefited from a reduction in their energy bills.

The areas it covers include Northumberland.

Energy efficiency items such as free A-rated gas boilers, subject to eligibility and survey, as well as cavity wall and loft insulation, are available. In addition, the programme has created annual carbon savings of nearly 15,000 tonnes.

Graeme Stephenson, lead partnership development manager at Warm Up North, said: “Northumberland residents can give us a call on 0800 2948073 to find out if they could join the thousands of people who are already benefitting from our programme.”
