100M to go into energy efficient council houses in Leeds: It has been revealed by Leeds City Council that they will invest £100 million in energy efficiency measures for council houses by 2025.

This plan aims to help tenants cut carbon and save money on energy bills.

Included in this plan will be new technologies such as district heating networks, solar panels, air source heat pumps and external wall insulation.

By 2030 the investment is expected to support the local authority’s commitment to shrink emissions to net zero.

Around a quarter of the city’s carbon emissions come from the energy consumed to heat homes, it is estimated.

“Living in a warm and energy efficient home is better for our health, better for our finances and better for the planet too.” said Councillor Debra Coupar, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Communities,

“We’re doing everything we can to make the properties we own fit for the future.” commented Councillor Helen Hayden, Executive Member for Climate Change, Transport and Sustainable Development.

“However, we now need a long-term, national plan that enables private homeowners to invest in their properties and gives reassurance to local businesses to hire and train workers with the skills needed to meet the demand for sustainable housing.”
