Major energy company British Gas has declared Green Lane in Leeds to be the winner of a competition to pursue cheap energy prices.
Edinburgh Evening News reports that British Gas gave £30,000 to more than 60 families in eight streets in different cities in the UK with the word 'green' in their names, to see which one could use the money to reduce its energy use by the highest amount.
The funds were spent on energy-efficient measures and a family in Leeds' Green Lane won the competition by producing a saving of nearly 35 per cent.
Mike Smith, an ecologist with the Forestry Commission's research section who produced the biggest saving in Edinburgh, told the paper: "[Savings] come as a result of a combination of things like the new condenser boiler that was put in and the cavity wall insulation."
He added that smaller things such as monitoring household heating and switching off lights also contributed, although savings have been cancelled out by rising energy costs.
The government is seeking to insulate every home in the UK in the coming years.
