A new phone line is launching today to give advice on how to save energy in homes and businesses.
The Energy Saving Trust (EST), who will run the phone line with Careline Services, will give advice on energy efficiency and also provide information on existing schemes. This will include the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT), which requires energy suppliers to install free or subsidised insulation and Warm Front, which is the government’s heating grant scheme.
It will also provide information about the Green Deal, which is launching later this year.
Energy and Climate Change Minister Gregory Barker said: “Having a central and trusted advice line is crucial to ensure people have all the right information about how they can save energy and money. This phone line will ultimately be one of the ways the public will be able to learn more about the Green Deal when it is launched later this year, providing information on how people can benefit from this new and groundbreaking scheme.”
