NIA Respods to Labour plans to save households over £1bn a year on energy bills

The National Insulation Association (NIA) have welcomed the news from the Labour Party this morning announcing plans to spend £2.3bn per year insulating 4 million homes in the next Parliament if it gets into power.

 

Neil Marshall, NIA CEO, commented; “We welcome these ambitious plans and our members stand ready to deliver. With over 5 million homes lacking cavity wall insulation, over 7 million homes having inadequate levels of loft insulation and over 7 million solid wall homes in need of insulating there needs to be a huge increase in funding and activity to reduce fuel bills and combat fuel poverty.  Home insulation is the most effective way of delivering long-term, sustainable savings on fuel bills and in addition a funded national insulation programme could reduce carbon emissions, reduce NHS costs, create inward investment and jobs and regenerate communities.
