NEWS ROUNDUP: £100m Leeds energy efficiency plan
Leeds City Council is set to invest £100 million on measures to help tenants save money and cut carbon by improving energy efficiency over the next five years.
Thousands more council tenants will benefit from cheaper energy bills and warmer homes as a result of the transformative investment which will be funded primarily through housing revenues.
New technologies will include ground and air source heat pumps, district heating networks, solar panels and external wall insulation, as installed here at the Shakespeare buildings.
The measures are expected to help residents facing fuel poverty and prevent the most vulnerable from suffering cold-related illnesses.
The council has committed to reducing the city’s direct emissions to net-zero by 2030 in a bid to make Leeds greener, fairer and healthier.
