Heating price freeze
Tenants of West Whitlawburn Housing Cooperative (WWHC) will have their heat and hot water bills frozen for the year.
The freeze until March 31, 2018, comes as the big energy suppliers have announced price increases of an average of 11.5 per cent.
WWHC launched a district heating scheme in 2014 in a bid to address fuel poverty amongst its tenants.
It has frozen its prices for heat and hot water for a 44th consecutive month.
The cooperative’s Susan Anderson said: “We are once again continuing our price freeze on energy supplies to our 530 tenants/members, who are part of our district heating scheme, for the next year.
“People said we were brave when we took this project on. However, we were convinced we could provide a stateof- the art heating system and supply energy at a considerable cost saving to our tenants.
“Given the price rises by other providers, we have been proven correct.”
