Bills slashed by energy features

Have your say

ECO-FRIENDLY home features at a Hackenthorpe property development are saving residents £54,000 a year collectively in energy bills.

Rainwater butts, composters and solar-powered water systems have been fitted in the Rise S12 estate’s houses.

And Home Group, the scheme’s developer, says the measures are helping to save householders £516 per property each year.

Rise S12 is part of a wider scheme by Home Group to create 259 affordable, sustainable homes.
