A landmark order by Together Housing to replace night storage heater with ground source heat pumps in over 700 dwellings across Lancashire and Yorkshire, is the largest single order of its kind in the UK. UK manufacturer, Kensa Heat Pumps, and contractual division, Kensa Contracting, will fulfill the order worth over £7.5 million over the next three years.
A diverse array of properties will take part in the heating upgrade scheme. The project will result in massive emissions savings, comparable to a 5MW solar PV farm featuring 20,000 solar panels covering an area of 30 acres.
Tenant fuel bills will be reduced by typically 30-50 percent, annually saving between £150 to £500 per dwelling.
