Warmer, more energy efficient homes are forecast for over 750 Sefton and Bootle residents early in 2013, as they are expected to benefit from an energy savings scheme known as ‘Sefton Sorted’. The scheme is aimed at helping people lower their energy consumption and bills, with households between Knowsley Road and Marsh Lane, expected to benefit the most.
With over 300 homeowners already signed up, the initiative will see homes receiving a range of energy saving measures, including insulation to lofts and external walls, draft proofing to windows and doors and upgraded heating systems - all at no cost to the householders.
The scheme is brought to the town by energy efficiency specialists, Energy Alliance, which works with the funding partners (energy suppliers and generators) to help promote and deliver the scheme. Hamilton Construction and local company, Warmer Energy Services, will be installing all of the energy saving measures into people’s homes. ‘Sefton Sorted’ is part of the countrywide Community Energy Savings Programme (or C.E.S.P. for short) and started in the selected homes before Christmas.
The ‘Sefton Sorted’ ad van has already been seen out and about on the streets, and members of the Energy Alliance team were on the ground, ready to answer questions and ensure householders did not miss out on up to £17,000 worth of free energy saving improvements. All participating householders were visited in person and invited to an information event in December at St. Leonard’s Community Rooms. Members of the ‘Sefton Sorted’ team were also on hand to answer any questions from local residents.
