This month saw the launch of ‘Warm Up Bristol’- a multi-million pound initiative to make homes across the city more energy efficient and to ultimately help home owners save money on their fuel bills. Conservative Candidate for Bristol West Claire Hiscott was delighted to be at the launch in Whitehall, Easton with Climate Change Minister Amber Rudd.
The Project is initially being rolled out in two areas of the city, Easton and Horfield, where home are amongst the least energy efficient. Run by Bristol City Council’s energy service, ‘Warm Up Bristol’ secured funding to be rolled out to approximately 30,000 homes over the next four years. Efficiency measures include, but are not limited to, solid and cavity wall insulation, draught proofing and new boilers.
Claire commented “Warm up Bristol is a great opportunity for home owners in the city to make their home more energy efficient. The Residents’ of Easton now have the opportunity to bring their houses up to date with all the latest eco-friendly and money saving technology.
“The enthusiasm of local residents and energy groups has been fantastic. Whitehall School was a welcoming venue for the launch and I especially love the energy bunting designed by the children. This project isn’t just about making houses more efficient but also about educating all ages on how to be more eco-friendly.”
