In the future some residents in blocks of flats, and maisonettes, will be offered heating powered by hot water from the Council’s new Recycling & Energy Recovery Facility. This is a type of heating known as District Heating and the unit price will be cheaper than what are residents currently paying for a unit of electricity.
Leeds City Councils key priorities are to make homes more energy efficient, to reduce fuel poverty and to reduce the amount of greenhouse gasses produced. District Heating will assist to achieve these priorities.
If your home is suitable for District Heating the Council will write to you with full details.
Below, we have provided further information about District Heating.
