To­mor­row Street gets re­sults

Element - - UPFRONT -

The ‘ad­vanced en­ergy neigh­bour­hood’ on Auck­land’s North Shore dubbed ‘To­mor­row Street’ has shown some promis­ing re­sults in terms of en­ergy sav­ings. The ini­tia­tive, a project of Ge­n­e­sis En­ergy, in­volves 15 homes which had en­ergy as­sess­ments and were then pro­vided with a range of home im­prove­ments in­clud­ing in­su­la­tion, heat pump hot water sys­tems, so­lar pan­els and en­ergy ef­fi­cient ap­pli­ances. Ge­n­e­sis En­ergy’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Al­bert Brantley said the re­sults were im­pres­sive. “Over­all, the 15 To­mor­row Street house­holds have saved 13% on their en­ergy us­age since start­ing the pro­gramme in April this year.”
