Vital Energi's track record of delivering low carbon solutions and District Heating networks has seen it provide energy schemes which lower bills and help to take people out of fuel poverty. In the case of H2010 our solutions delivered 15% savings off residents' energy bills each year when compared to gas.
Vital Energi has been appointed to deliver and operate a low carbon community energy scheme to new homes at the heart of the new Aire Valley “eco-settlement” area of Yorkshire.
The new development will include a mixture of two to five bedroom houses and one and two bedroom apartments. It is being designed to achieve Level 3 under the Code for Sustainable Homes and will incorporate a state-of-the-art sustainable energy system to provide low cost and low carbon heat and power.
Situated on the Hunslet Waterfront in the centre of Leeds, the 220 new Miller Homes properties are being part-funded by a £1.7 million Low Carbon Infrastructure Fund (LCIF) and Vital Energi has been appointed as the Energy Services Company (ESCo) for the development.
Vital Energi has designed, supplied and installed, and is now operating and maintaining, a pioneering new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) energy centre for Phase 2 of the development. This will connect 80 houses to the energy supply with a further 141 homes being connected over the next three years.
Vital Energi will also operate the scheme for 25 years, providing a full service to residents, including energy metering and billing as well as related customer service.
