Oxford Residents because of a new pilot smart heating project could potentially save money on their heating costs.
Stonewater the housing provider has partnered with Kensa Contracting to develop a pilot heating scheme for 60 homes in the area, which will install an innovative low carbon heating solution.
Heat pumps, smart controls and time-of-use tariffs will be integrated to optimise heat production for cost and carbon savings.
The renewable heating project, forms part of Energy Superhub Oxford (ESO) project which aims to decarbonise power, heat and transport across Oxford and will deploy the smart technology in 300 homes during the next two years,
Assistant Director and Capital Investment, Leon Storer at Stonewater, said: “We are delighted to be a part of this innovative and forward-thinking project, supporting the local authority in achieving a net zero carbon future.
“By replacing our residents’ current high carbon night storage heaters with Kensa’s ground source heat pump systems, we are able to not only work towards a more sustainable future but an economical one too.”
