A low-carbon heating system is being installed by E.ON’s Sustainable Energy business at a site where there is no mains gas access, in Ceredigion, Wales.
Boilers are being fitted which integrate with ground source heat pumps in all 41 homes, in a scheme aimed at saving residents nearly £4,000 per year in total.
The work is being undertaken with Tai Ceredigion Housing Association. The scheme is also expected to save more than 67 tonnes of carbon per year, roughly equal to taking 35 cars from the roads.
In addition to those carbon savings, solar photovoltaic panels to produce electricity are to be installed on the homes by E.ON Sustainable Energy. GSHPs and solar panels offer big financial savings.
E.ON Sustainable Energy previously installed solar hot water systems in 15 homes in Pntrhydygroes.
Head of microgeneration at E.ON’s Sustainable Energy business, Thomas Buss, said the new heat pump system will bring the residents concerned in Ceredigion more affordable and sustainable energy.
It will lower carbon emissions by more than half and save around a third on annual energy bills for the residents, he said.
