EDF Energy has announced that it is contributing £1m to fund energy-efficient heating measures in three Manchester tower blocks, which were recently launched collectively as “Tribe”, Biomass Magazine has reported.
The funds will be put towards the installation of low-carbon biomass district heating systems across the 192 apartments.
According to EDF, the installation of biomass heating systems will lead to savings of 27,000 metric tons of carbon and residents could save up to £880 a year on heating bills.
EDF Energy’s energy field services director Eric Salomon said: “We are proud to be able to bring our ECO project funding to Manchester.
“Energy efficiency improvements such as these will make a significant difference to the lives of the residents, who will now be able to benefit from lower fuel bills and much warmer homes.”
The work is due for completion in July.
