Chris Huhne says insulating homes "a no brainer"

Following on the same theme as yesterday's blog about nine solutions that work to combat rise in fuel prices, today the BBC reports that Energy Secretary Chris Huhne has unveiled a plan to insulate the UK's draughty housing stock.

After 2012, people will be able to approach their energy supplier for a loan to cover the cost of insulation, instead of paying in advance.

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne said the deal - which is part of the Energy Bill - would "make upgrading our nation's draughty homes a no brainer".
