Government launches new green homes service

The government has launched a new ''one stop shop'' for homeowners, designed to allow them to access all the information needed to help make a property energy efficient.

Services such as a home energy audit and information about grants for energy-saving home improvements will be available via the Green Homes Service, while visitors will also be able to find ways to make their travel greener.

Announcing the scheme, environment minister Hilary Benn said: "When it comes to cutting your carbon footprint, the old adage ''there''s no place like home'' really is true."

"We need to make this as easy as possible for people to do. There''s a lot of help out there in the form of grants, advice, and other assistance, but it''s hard to know where to start."

"The Green Homes Service will cut through the confusion by providing a one stop shop, including a green MOT for your home and a green home makeover," he concluded.

The service, which is set to launch on April 1st 2008, will have a budget of in excess of £100 million.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18362626-ADNFCR
