HOMEOWNERS are being urged to “go green” and become more energy efficient to save money on their electricity bills.

Babergh District Council has teamed up with the Energy Saving Trust to offer residents a free home energy report.

Everyone in Babergh will be sent the questionnaire, which will show ways to cut down on home energy use and the savings that can be made by being more environmentally conscious.

Rex Thake, chairman of Babergh, said: “This is a great opportunity for residents to find out how to become more energy efficient in their homes. Saving energy not only reduces the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere but can also save us money on our fuel bills.

“I'd encourage all Babergh households to return their questionnaires in order to receive their own home energy reports. I'm looking forward to receiving my report and taking action to save energy in my home.”

Ashley Baxter, director of the Energy Saving Trust Advice Centre Anglia, said: “Babergh residents wishing to find out more about the environmental and financial benefits of becoming energy efficient should make sure that completing a free home energy check is the first step they take as this will identify ways to make their homes as energy efficient as they can be.”
