Energy-efficiency highlighted

Posted onPosted on 16th Apr

An energy-saving project in Sutton has been nominated for a regional award.

J. Tomlinson and Ashfield District Council are jointly shortlisted for an East Midlands Energy Efficiency award for the work, which will help householders keep warm and save thousands of pounds on their fuel bills.

They have been nominated in the Large Scale Project Of The Year Award, which recognise the efforts of teams in delivering a successful large-scale energy-saving project, while maintaining excellent customer service and a high standard of quality workmanship.

The shortlisted nomination was based around an energy and thermal-efficiency project J Tomlinson undertook on behalf of the council across 36 bungalows on the Coxmoor Estate, Sutton, in 2017.

The work required as part of the project were extensive, comprising external wall insulation and replacement roof covering, as well as the replacement of windows and external doors.

The estimated energy-savings as a result of the project was 50 tonnes per annum, which equated to an annual saving of £450 per household.

One tenant said: “The difference in heating is unbelievable and the bungalow is so much warmer without the heating on.”

The council is also shortlisted in the Landlord Of The Year category.
