Bright Idea Leads To Cash Savings

Electricity bills look set to fall in south Warwickshire from next week, when 3,000 low energy light bulbs are given away by the district council.

The bulbs are one of the most cost effective energy saving measures that can be done in the home, and will save around 10 a year on electricity bills, as well as last up to ten times longer than a normal light bulb.

Stratford-on-Avon District Council will be giving out the free low energy light bulbs from Monday 2 April to help certain eligible households save money on their electricity bills.

To qualify households must have at least one resident who is either over 60, registered disabled or claiming family income support.

The light bulbs will be distributed on a first come first serve basis from the district council's offices in Alcester, Southam, Shipston, and Stratford. Proof of eligibility will be required and only one low energy light bulb will be given out per household.

Local electricity supplier, Npower, has donated the 3,000 low energy light bulbs though its Energy Efficiency Commitment Funds to the district council.

Anyone requiring further information on the scheme or any other energy saving measures should contact Tracy Dexter, the district council's home energy efficiency officer on 01789 260863.
