Solar flare from Changeworks
February 20 2009
Pipe work will connect directly from the panels to all individual properties supplying some 50% of their annual hot water requirement.
The £200,000 Renewable Heritage project is being run in partnership with Changeworks, Lister Housing Co-operative, Edinburgh World Heritage, eaga Charitable Trust and The City of Edinburgh Council.
Jenny Lewis, Chair of Lister Housing Co-operative, is delighted, saying: "This project will help reduce our tenants' fuel consumption, save carbon and support Scottish jobs, without in any way jeopardising our B-listed Georgian tenements – it’s a win-win solution".
It is hoped that this work can serve as a model for others living in historic homes to generate their own clean energy without detracting from their heritage value.
