A scheme to help people living in London to get cheap energy as a result of better efficiency measures has assisted its 40,000th home.
The RE:NEW programme, which offers residents a range of renovations to reduce their domestic energy usage, is estimated to have saved householders £4 million on their gas and electricity expenses so far.
Mayor Boris Johnson said: "I want to help Londoners tackle the cold and cope better with rising fuel bills. RE:NEW is working to do this with tens of thousands of homes across the capital now set to benefit."
The success of the scheme was also praised by Philip Sellwood, chief executive of the Energy Saving Trust, who said it is "brilliant" the initiative has reached this milestone.
He added with the recent cold weather driving up energy use, there is no better time to take steps to ensure individuals are able to keep their homes warm affordably.
Recently, it was also confirmed the city's RE:FIT programme is set to improve the efficiency of 400 public buildings in the capital, including schools, libraries and hospitals.
