We are calling on local residents to take advantage of a free energy efficiency offer which could enable them to earn £50 by helping a friend or relative.
Under the ‘Share the Warmth’ scheme, people will earn £50 for every person on qualifying benefits they refer to British Gas for free insulation. The money will be paid once the installation has been completed and there is no limit on the number of people they can refer.
Loft insulation can reduce a household’s annual heating bills by up to £175 and cavity wall insulation by up to £135. According to DECC, nearly half of Britain’s homes currently do not have adequate basic insulation.
The ‘Share the Warmth’ scheme is a great incentive for people to do their bit to ensure that friends and family are getting the help they need during these diffcult times. If you know someone you think might benefit from this offer, encourage them to call British Gas on 0800 975 1195 and you could both earn £50, as well as saving money on your energy bills.
