A firm is set to complete a contract to install more than 300 homes in Preston with energy efficient boilers.
Green Deal Solutions have been subcontracted as part of a project between Preston Council and Regain.
104 properties in Seven Rivers, Fishwick, and 244 properties in Sandown Court, in the city centre, have all been given either free upgrades on their existing boilers or new biomass ones. Work began earlier this year, and the properties have also benefitted from improved external insulation and either triple or ‘A rated’ glazing. It is estimated the householders could be making savings in the region of 30 per cent on their heating bills.
Funding for the work is part of the government’s Community Energy Savings Programme.
