Residents of North Manchester’s draughty council homes have long-wanted to be warmer. They also want to spend less on that warmth. Northwards Housing has delivered. Going far beyond government standards, they are converting their housing stock into energy-efficient homes, with no charge to tenants. Already over 70% of their 12,500 houses have been overhauled with external wall insulation, double glazed windows, and even an A-rated boiler. And with personal comfort come environmental benefits. CO2 emissions have dropped by at least 17,500 tonnes a year.
