Carl Talbot-Davies, Torus Group Head of Assets & Compliance, said; “Social housing needs to be energy efficient and fit for the future.
These are just a few examples of how we are working hard to make our energy systems more sustainable with an aim to reduce energy usage, cut waste, drive down greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the cost of energy bills for our customers.
By investing in our homes and making them better, we can protect the people who live in them from high energy bills and fuel poverty, which is especially beneficial for the high proportion of social tenants who are on low incomes.”
