Fuel Prices to be Slashed for Tenants

To help tenants cut down their fuel bills this winter, A Liverpool housing association has announced that they are going to invest £1.1 million into energy saving projects, such as solid wall insulation and solar panels.   

Plus Dane Group will be offering Merseyside residents these new energy saving options, with potential give tenant’s access to free day-time electricity, free water heating and a reduction on their Tenants Insurance. The programme forms part of the Renewable & Energy Efficiency in Community Housing initiative (REECH).

To begin, more than 30 homes in Toxteth, will receive the innovative move, before other streets and neighbourhoods are offered the innovations at a later date.

Martin Gladwin, Plus Dane’s Head of Asset Management, has been quoted saying: “The energy challenges of the future are immense, with climate change and the likelihood of rising fuel bills having a huge impact on people’s lives and livelihoods.”

Mr Gladwin went on to add the following: “Plus Dane is committed to investing in our properties to make them all fit for the future and this is the one of the first steps on that journey. Tenants will be offered the work free of charge and should immediately see a big reduction in their annual fuel bills.”

What is more, REECH is a European Regional Development Funded project that is aimed at improving energy efficiency in some of the most deprived areas and communities in Liverpool. Over 12,500 homes across Merseyside and Cheshire are now owned and managed by Plus Dane Group.
