One hundred thousand homes across Wales will be warmer and greener if Labour wins May's Assembly election.
Welsh Labour is promising to extend its Home Energy Efficiency Scheme (HEES) to ensure that by 2011, 100,000 homes will have benefited from greater energy efficiency measures, such as central heating, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.
Assembly Environment Minister Carwyn Jones said:
"Welsh Labour is committed to rising to the challenge of climate change and reducing Wales' ecological footprint, and we know that improving energy efficiency is the easiest and cheapest way of doing this."
"Under Labour, Wales has already made great strides. The Home Energy Efficiency Scheme (HEES) has helped thousands of homes become more energy efficient and the Assembly Government has given a total of £3.1 million to local NHS trusts to use their energy more efficiently."
"Now we want to take this one step further. If re-elected, Welsh Labour will ensure that even more homes will be able to keep warm, reduce their emissions and do their bit for climate change."
"A vote for Labour on May 3 is a vote for a green and sustainable future for Wales."
Assembly Social Justice Minister Edwina Hart added:
"Fuel poverty is a serious problem affecting tens of thousands of people in Wales. Labour is totally committed to lifting people out of this trap which is why the Labour Welsh Assembly Government has already funded energy efficiency measures in 70,000 homes."
"Now Welsh Labour will build on this success and by 2011 make 100,000 homes energy efficient. Not only will this cut heating bills for our most vulnerable citizens, but it is also good news for the environment and people's health."
