Sinn Féin councillor Mick Murphy has encouraged local people to take advantage of a Power NI scheme offering cavity wall and loft insulation for free, helping to save up to £150 a year off energy bills.

Speaking about the scheme, which is open to the elderly and those on low incomes, Murphy said, “With rising energy costs and an increasing number of people living in fuel poverty, this scheme, funded by the sustainable energy programme, is a welcome option for those seeking to save money on their bills and better insulate their homes.

“Free insulation up to a maximum value of £800 is available. The Insulation package includes; loft insulation up to the recommended 300mm, cavity wall insulation, hot water tank jacket and 4 energy saving light bulbs.

“This programme is allocated on a first come first serve basis and I would encourage those in the South Down area to apply as soon as possible so as to avoid disappointment.”

Those eligible include:

• A single person with an income or pension less than £18,000 per year gross.

• A couple with an income of less than £25,000 gross per year.

• A single parent family with an income of £25,000 or less.

• A single person or couple household with a pension of less than £30,000 gross and are aged over 70.
