Greater Manchester residents can find out how they can slash their fuel bills at the click of a mouse after a special web service was launched.
Greater Manchester Energy Advice (GMEA) has launched the innovative service which lets residents access energy offers tailor made for their homes and circumstances within minutes.
Residents just need to visit www.gmenergyadvice.co.uk, click on ‘create your Little Bill offer’ and fill in a few details, before being given information about free and discounted energy saving improvements available to them – ranging from new boilers to solid wall insulation and solar panels.
The service has been set up as part of the Little Bill programme, launched earlier this year by the ten councils across Greater Manchester, enabling some residents to access up to £7,000 worth of home energy improvements.
Cllr Sue Derbyshire, leader of Stockport Council and chairwoman of the Greater Manchester Low Carbon Hub, said: “Household fuel bills are growing all the time, and now the nights are drawing in and the summer is well and truly over, this is the ideal time for people across Greater Manchester to find out how they can save money.
“This web service enables residents to find out what offers are specifically available to them – and they can access it any time of the day or night. It’s the first time any English council has offered such a convenient service and I’d urge anyone interested in saving money to visit the site as soon as possible.”
Amber Rudd MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Department of Energy & Climate Change: “With dark nights and cold weather just around the corner it makes sense for people to make energy saving improvements now. Manchester Green Deal Communities and the ‘Little Bill’ campaign mean households in Manchester can look forward to warmer homes and greater control over their energy bills this winter.”
