We have just completed our second energy study to include all the houses in the Poets Estate. We chose this area because they are all similar houses built around the same time. We took gas and electricity readings for the January/March period 2012
The first study in Fordington Avenue in 2010/11 found that just being part of a scheme like this, motivated people to think about their usage and make changes.
The highest consumer of electricity in the first study was prompted to replace light bulbs and change usage which led to a 45% reduction in energy used when compared with the same period the previous year.
We felt the results were positive and this encouraged us to embark on this project. See the Poets Estate Energy Study Report on this tab.
