A partnership led by Cambridgeshire County Council is set to help residents in the country get cheap energy deals by improving the efficiency of homes.
The authority, which is working with Anglia Ruskin University, housing association Luminus and Fenland District Council, has been awarded £200,000 of funding from the EU for the improvements in Wisbech, the Peterborough Evening Telegraph reports.
Chief executive of Luminus Chan Abhraham said: "We're delighted homes in Wisbech will benefit from the grant funding."
The money will be used by SmartLIFE Retro-fit to carry out renovations in the existing social housing developments cut their gas and electricity bills by reducing energy consumption.
