Save energy and reduce your fuel bill

WIGAN borough residents are being encouraged to save energy – as well as reduce their fuel bills – by applying for free or discounted work on their homes.

This new offer can provide a variety of free insulation measures, not just loft and cavity wall, and some eligible residents may also be entitled to a new boiler.

Residents are encouraged to call the advice line to see if their property is eligible as it could see them saving hundreds of pounds a year from their energy bills.

Even if a property hasn’t been suitable in the past, there may now be solutions available.

The offer is being made as part of the Get Me Toasty campaign, in which people living in certain areas of Greater Manchester will automatically qualify for free insulation measures.

Some low income households with poor insulation and heating systems will be able to access free heating and insulation improvements.

Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council and chairman of the Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub, said: “With energy prices set to rise yet again, the cost of keeping warm is a serious concern for a lot of residents.

“Now is the time for people who cannot afford to make their homes more efficient to get in touch with the advice service, and I’d urge anyone to visit the website and see if they’re eligible for this free service.”

Visit www.getmetoasty.com for more information, or call the Greater Manchester Energy Advice Service between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday on free phone 0800 009 3363.

Alternatively, email details to getmetoasty@manchester.gov.uk and request a call back.
