Energy efficiency work has been completed on 41 Rhyl council homes.

Work has finished on phase two of the Welsh Government funded energy improvements to the Denbighshire Housing properties on Rhydwen Drive, Rhyl.

The homes have had solar panels fitted to generate electricity which is stored in batteries fitted into the properties to allow energy use in the evenings.

In addition, the properties have had external wall insulation carried out to support the reduction of drafts and the energy needed to heat homes, especially during the winter time.

Following the completion of phase two, altogether 96 Denbighshire Housing properties on Rhydwen Drive have received energy efficiency improvements.

Cllr Rhys Thomas, Lead Member for Housing and Communities at Denbighshire County Council said: “We are pleased to see the completion of phase two of this project to improve the energy efficiency of the 41 homes on Rhydwen Drive. ‘I was grateful to have recently visited Rhydwen Drive and to have met with some of the tenants who have had this work done on their homes. They were very pleased with the appearance of their homes and also with the impact that having solar panels and added insulation was having on reducing their fuel bills at this time of high energy costs.”
