Bristol West MP, Stephen Williams, has welcomed Bristol City Council's plans to introduce a series of energy saving measures across the city as part of the Green Deal, a Liberal Democrat initiative delivered in Coalition Government.
The Green Deal aims to reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency through the installation of one-off energy efficiency and micro-generation measures. The Green Deal reduces the barrier of the upfront cost of these measures, through companies offering a loan that is paid for by the savings subsequently made in energy bills.
Stephen Williams said:
"The proposals brought forward by the Council build on the Liberal Democrat green agenda in Coalition Government. I am delighted that Bristol is once again leading the way.
"The Green Deal will be revolutionary in its impact on our housing stock and will make our homes more comfortable and cheaper to heat, while contributing to a reduction in energy use. It will help people now and future generations too with their energy bills."
