New scheme hopes to cut energy costs for Staffordshire homes
A new scheme that aims to help half the energy costs of over 130 residents in Staffordshire has recently been launched, a news report into the matter has revealed.
Kensa Heat Pumps are working alongside Trent & Dove Housing to deliver the scheme. As part of this programme, conventional electrical heating systems will be replaced in one and two bedroom bungalows with a ground source heat pump and a new radiator based heating system.
Connected to a network of communal ground arrays across 15 sites, the heat pumps will provide 100% of heating and domestic hot water requirements.
Steve Grocock, Housing Director of Property Services for Trent & Dove Housing, suggests the scheme could save each property up to £350 per year.
He added: “Over the past three years we have invested heavily in our ‘harder to heat’ properties and the addition of ground source heat pumps to some of our more rural homes should help our tenants, many of whom are elderly or vulnerable, make significant savings on their energy bills.”
