Free insulation offer for homes

Have your say

Residents are being urged to sign up for free home energy efficiency improvements.

Free cavity wall and loft insulation is on offer to around 650 homes in Rotherham through the new Green Deal initiative, after being given a £300,000 grant.

Rotherham has been chosen as a ‘pioneer place’ under the Government scheme - but residents need to act fast to take advantage.

South Yorkshire-based contractor Keepmoat is working with Rotherham Council to sign up residents and carry out the work before the end of May.

Call Keepmoat on 0800 019 0919 for further information about the scheme, which could save hundreds of pounds on energy bills, the council said.
