Nearly 2,000 households in Yeovil, Somerset, have been assisted in having their bills from energy suppliers reduced through the Warm Front scheme, reports the Yeovil Express.
The scheme is specifically designed to help reduce bills for low-income and vulnerable households by assisting in the installation of energy-efficient measures such as cavity wall insulation.
Nearly £2 million has been spent in the Yeovil region, with residents reporting savings of up to £600 on their energy bills.
Yeovil MP David Laws told the paper: "I am very pleased that almost 2,000 local households have now been helped with their energy efficiency, particularly at a time when so many are struggling to afford their energy bills."
He called for more qualifying local residents to become involved with the scheme so its effects can be even more wide-reaching. People must be claiming benefit and either renting a private property or be a homeowner in order to qualify.
The Warm Front scheme is designed to reduce the number of households living in fuel poverty, currently estimated to total more than five million.
