North Wales housing association ClwydAlyn has been ranked third among UK social housing providers building the most energy-efficient homes.
The ranking, taken from Inside Housing’s top 50 Biggest Builder’s survey shows that ClwydAlyn outperformed considerably larger landlords with an impressive 102 out of the 149 homes completed in 2022-23 receiving a top band EPC A rating.
The accomplishment demonstrates the housing association’s dedication to providing homes where sustainability and energy efficiency are at the forefront, improving comfort and affordability for tenants.
Homes with an EPC rating of A can mean a reduction of up to half the cost of heating bills when compared to homes with a B rating. The majority of ClwydAlyn’s new homes achieving this rating are low-carbon green homes, which while costing significantly more to build, exceed the highest efficiency rating. As the cost-of-living crisis continues to impact households, delivering homes that offer substantial energy savings is hugely significant for residents.
