    A loan fund of £200,000 has been set up to help people in south Cambridgeshire become more energy efficient.

    Householders, voluntary groups and small firms will be able to borrow cash from the district council's Green Energy Loan Fund to pay for everything from solar panels to insulation.

    They can apply for loans of £1,000 to £10,000, the council said.

    It'll be launched in the summer.
