Mr P, a tenant of Waverley Housing, was selected to have a package of energy-saving improvements installed in his home, including an air source heat pump, battery storage technology and a solar PV systemRead more >
Waverley Housing (WH) has been awarded funding from the Scottish Government to install a range of energy-saving improvements in homes in the Scottish Borders.
These improvements can include a solar PV system (which generates energy from the sun), an air source heat pump (which is a renewable form of heating) and battery storage technology (to store any low-cost electricity that is generated). There is also the potential for eligible households to receive robotically applied underfloor insulation.
The project aims to make fuel bills for tenants more manageable, increase the amount of energy that can be stored from renewable sources and also make homes more environmentally-friendly, cutting carbon emissions and contributing to a sustainable future for Scotland.
Warmworks will oversee the delivery of the end-to-end process, ensuring that customers experience a first-class, streamlined service. The graphic below shows the steps that are involved in the project.
The project is not led by applications and householders are not expected to apply. The project targets properties owned by Waverley Housing that are identified as potentially eligible to receive these energy-saving improvements.
Every member of Warmworks’ supply chain for this project will be held to our extremely high standards in terms of the quality of work they deliver.
This is consistently monitored by a dedicated performance management system and our in-house team provides daily support to all sub-contractors, to ensure customers receive a first-class service.
