HUNDREDS of residents on the Lakes Estate are to benefit from funding to make their homes cleaner, greener, warmer, dryer and cheaper to heat.

The Lakes Community Energy Saving Project (CESP) – a scheme which will help fund vital ‘eco-upgrades’ to people’s homes – caters for both council houses and privately owned or rented ones. Work on the scheme began on March 7 with 469 homes in all set to become up to 20 per cent more energy efficient.

The scheme is mainly funded by Milton Keynes Council, with power giants npower providing grant funding that they earn based on the amount of carbon savings realised by installing the ‘eco-upgrades’.
