Havebury Housing Partnership is aiming to cut tenants’ energy bills by installing solar panels on 2,000 homes.

The first phase of the programme, putting photovoltaic panels on 620 homes, has already started and is fully funded by Macquarie Lending, requiring no cost to Havebury. They are working with Keepmoat, a leader in sustainable community regeneration.

Phillip Sullivan, Havebury’s operations director, said: “This is a very exciting initiative and could potentially offer our residents great savings on their energy costs.

“Our aim is to ensure that we tackle fuel poverty and keep our residents warm in their homes.

“Not only can we now generate free solar energy, but we can also put energy back into the National Grid.”

Havebury’s head of assets Matthew Dick added: “Havebury is committed to helping its tenants financially and has capitalised on an exciting programme that offers significant electricity bill savings for its customers and reduces carbon dioxide emissions by installing solar PV panels at no cost and no risk.”
