Eco-friendly energy system set to save hundreds for elderly Fenland residents
ELDERLY residents could save hundreds of pounds after plans to install an eco-friendly energy system at a Fenland care home were confirmed.
With fuel and gas prices steepling, more than 60 tenants from Upwell Park retirement complex in March are set for a welcome financial boost thanks to one of the largest renewable energy installations in the region.
Riomay Renewable Energies, working with Snowmountain Enterprises Limited, will install a photovoltaic system on the roofs of the 66 bungalows and the care home this summer.
The 134kWp system will create enough energy to cover the lighting and cooking of each household per day - saving tenants hundreds on their bills. The Skoulding family, who run Snowmountain Enterprises, have decided to pass on the saving to their tenants.
The project is also estimated to have a CO2 saving of 73,000kg per annum.

Tony Book, Executive Director of Riomay Renewable Energies, said: “Many people are beginning to realise the benefits both financially as well as environmentally of renewable energy.
“By installing this system, the Skoulding family are kindly allowing the tenants to benefit from the Government’s Feed in Tariff.”
