We are also committed to providing homes with low running costs for residents and our developments at Blisland, Morwenstow, Goonhavern, Kilkhampton, Tresmeer, Delabole, St Teath and on the Isles of Scilly were fitted with ground source heat pumps, with some properties also having rainwater harvesting and solar thermal systems installed.
Our developments of 21 homes at Delabole, completed during in December 2010, and 25 homes at The Lizard, completed in March 2016, feature properties with high levels of insulation and photovoltaic panels. Our 6 homes in Grampound have also been fitted with photovoltaic panels.
We were pleased to see our efforts on St Mary’s recognised in the Draft Sustainable Energy Strategy for the Isles of Scilly, which contained a detailed reference to our new development and stated that: “These buildings are setting the benchmark for future development on the Islands”.
