One of the big six energy suppliers British Gas is launching a scheme this summer aimed at helping households improve their energy efficiency.
Under the scheme, up to 50,000 of the most vulnerable households across the country will receive around £10 million worth of free energy assessments and efficiency measures, reports About My Area.
The measures are expected to cut carbon emissions by around 10,000 tonnes and help consumers reduce their energy bills by around £250 per year.
British Gas will be working with a number of charities such as National Energy Action, the Royal National Institute of Blind People and Scope to implement the scheme.
Phil Bentley, managing director at British Gas, told About My Area that improving energy efficiency in the home is one of the quickest ways to reduce bills and lower carbon emissions.
"By targeting free energy assessments and other measures at those who need it most, we can make a real difference to the quality of their lives and do our bit for the planet at the same time," he said.
Earlier this year, British Gas launched the Partnerships for Schools project with the government to promote energy awareness among pupils across the country.
