California Meadows, Longhurst Group
Longhurst Group are installing ground source heat pumps into their new affordable housing development in Cambridgeshire. The project utilised funding from Kensa Utilities and used Kensa Contracting for the project delivery.
Kensa Contracting is overseeing the installation of 56 Kensa ground source heat pumps into Longhurst Group’s new affordable housing development, California Meadows in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. The leading housing provider secured funded ground arrays from infrastructure asset company, Kensa Utilities, leaving them to pay just for the ground source heat pumps at a price comparable to air source.
The addition of energy-efficient and low-carbon ground source heat pumps helped Longhurst Group achieve carbon compliance, future-proofing the development, and increasing the value and saleability of the properties. The new householders will be able to reap the unique benefits of harnessing underground heat to keep their houses warm, ensure their bills stay low, and achieve energy independence.
