Householders wanting to compare energy deals might be interested to hear that individuals in a Welsh town have secured cheap energy bills through a British Gas initiative.
The energy supplier's Green Streets challenge crowned Llangattock Green Valleys as its most sustainable community, as residents have deployed a number of energy efficiency measures to bring down their electricity and gas expenditure.
Using solar panels, an air source heat pump and fitting insulation, biomass boilers, multi-fuel stoves and new efficient boilers, the locals are hoping to save £62,000 from their total energy bills over the next five years, while cutting their carbon output by almost 200 tonnes.
Gearoid Lane, managing director of British Gas New Markets, commented: "Over the last 14 months the people of Llangattock have shown some amazing levels of commitment to cutting carbon emissions, changing their behaviour and educating the wider community about what can be done.
"We believe it is people at a local level who will help revolutionise the way that energy is generated and consumed in Britain," he added.
