Have your say

FREE home assessments are being carried out to help households save money on energy bills.

The Solent Green Deal is being rolled out by Portsmouth City Council to provide advice on how to make affordable energy efficient improvements to homes using council approved local contractors.

The assessor will inspect homes and recommend improvements such as loft, wall or door insulation, double-glazing, solar power or biomass boilers.

They will estimate how much this could save on energy bills.

Once the work has been completed they will complete another check and provide an EPC certificate.

Some people will be eligible for a grant or a Green Deal loan.
