Almost 200 Wakefield District Housing homes benefit from home energy improvements

Almost 200 Wakefield District Housing (WDH) homes are benefitting from warmer, more energy efficient homes thanks to a retrofit project funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The trial project, funded by £2.8 million from the ERDF, saw WDH work alongside energy and regeneration expert Equans to make improvements to wall and loft insulation, air tightness and ventilation in 198 homes in Airedale.

“ We’re pleased that residents are already benefitting from these improvements, and we hope that this scheme will help to pave the way for more retrofit projects in the area. It’s been a pleasure to work collaboratively with WDH and the local community, and to use our carbon reduction expertise to create warmer, healthier, and cheaper to run homes for so many residents. ”
