Fairwater Living Lab - Residential Heat Pump Study - Annual Public Report


This has been such an interesting project to support, and watch unfold. We were confident the installation of geothermal heating and cooling technology in our Fairwater homes would help our customers reduce their energy consumption, and their bills, and now we have confirmation of that.
