businesses join forces to promote home energy measures

Npower has teamed up with insulation manufacturer Rockwool and national builders merchant Build Centre to launch a new DIY energy-saving scheme.

The project will enable homeowners to invest in two Rockwool loft insulations for the price of one and entitle them to free home delivery service from local Build Centres.

Homeowners will also receive a free installation guide and safety kit as part of the scheme, which was set up using Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) funding.

Chris Pateman, from the Builders Merchants Federation, said: "The CERT insulation scheme has been in danger of losing credibility over the last year by forcing people to buy materials exclusively from DIY retail outlets, who often cannot offer the variety, delivery or advice that builders merchants can.

"It's pleasing to see Rockwool and npower have been able to help redress this distortion."

Ensuring the average domestic loft is insulated thoroughly could cut carbon emission by around a tonne per year, according to online energy efficiency advisor

The website also said that homeowners could also save up to £150 per year on heating bills by following this energy saving tip.
