Free Insulation For All

Matt Follett, Green Party councillor said today

“The Local Government Association and the Green Party have called for  councils to provide nationwide free insulation, through a scheme based on the Kirklees Metropolitan Borough Council model, that has  by the Green Party Group of Councillors in Kirklees, a model which includes how it can be financed.

Insulating every home properly cuts fuel bills in the average home by up to half. This helps everyone at a time of rising energy prices, but especially people on low incomes in older, more run-down housing who – even though they can ill afford it – spend more of their income than the better off, just to keep warm.

insulationThe Green Party has shown that a universal free insulation scheme can work in Kirklees, Huddersfield where Green Councillors have made sure that 40,000 households will receive around £400 worth of insulation measures for absolutely nothing.

Last year, more homes were insulated like this in Kirkless than in the whole of Greater London.

If they can do it in Kirklees why can’t we do it in Derbyshire?
