EDF do something good and offer free insulation

2 November 2011

EDF_280_549370a About 85% of stories on Bitterwallet involve scathing criticism of energy companies, so it might be nice if we ran one that praised one of them a bit, even if it feels weird. So here goes…

EDF Energy have announced that they are offering free loft and cavity wall insulation until 31 March 2012 (although there’s probably something in it for them). Better still, you don’t even need to be an EDF customer to take advantage of the offer – although they say that there may be a charge for some ‘non-standard’ installations.

You can find out more by calling EDF on 0800 015 7786, although they’re saying that there might be a wait to get your insulation fitted due to demand. Also, you won't be able to apply if you already have some cavity wall insulation installed or loft insulation that's more than 60mm thick. At least two-thirds of your loft and wall space will need to be available to insulate. Get your rulers out.

Energy suppliers – we try our hardest but damn it, it’s impossible not to love them. Agree?

    From the Dept of Energy and Climate Change "The cost to suppliers of achieving the CERT (from April 2008 to December 2012) is estimated to total £5.5 billion." This is equavaent to £230 per household. How is this free?

    You've mentioned EDF and I'm going to go off on a tangent, EDF sponsor the 2012 Olympics, as do McDonalds, Acer, Atos, Coca Cola, P&G, Visa, Samsung, etc, etc. Can anyone name a British company that's sponsoring them? Of the 25 sponsors there are 4 that are kinda British but have major foreign shareholders.
