Lowestoft homes set to benefit from energy scheme

An ambitious energy efficiency scheme will see 400 properties in Lowestoft's Harbour Ward benefit from warmer homes and reduced energy bills while cutting down on green houses gases.

The project will involve external solid wall insulation works, windows, new central heating systems and boiler replacements where required and will take several months to complete.

The energy improvement works will be carried out at no cost to the householder – subject to a survey.

It is being carried out by Bright Green, MITIE Property Services and Waveney District Council in partnership with Climate Energy Ltd.

The scheme is being funded by the government's Community Energy Saving Programme which requires energy companies to make energy efficiency improvements on a community scale, and will attract more than �3 million of funding from the project sponsor Npower.

It is said the project will also improve the look of the Harbour Ward.

The Suffolk Foundation and the Waveney Local Strategic Partnership have also supported the project, which has been two years in the making.
