Heat­ing price freeze

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.”
