New gas connection scheme launched in Bracknell

Work recently began on the £1.4 million scheme to connect 498 homes to the gas network at Warfield Park in Bracknell.

The Park is one of Britain’s longest established residential park home estates but residents were struggling to keep their homes warm using heating systems powered by LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), which costs more than using a mains gas supply.

Cadent, AWS and project partner Happy Energy will provide every home with a free connection to the new gas mains network. Qualifying households will also have new energy efficient gas central heating systems installed or their existing systems converted, all at no extra cost to the residents.

Work on the project recently got underway and is due for completion in early 2019.

Leigh Page, Cadent commercial services manager, said: “We’re very happy to be working with AWS and Warfield Park to deliver this scheme.

“With the new connection to our local gas network and the new energy efficient gas heating systems residents will be soon be able to enjoy a new economical and efficient way to heat their homes.”

Jeremy Nesbitt, managing director of AWS, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support the Park owners and residents of Warfield Park with this exciting scheme that is the largest of its type delivered by a Gas Distribution Company.

“Together with project partners Happy Energy and T K Gallagher we’ve already started connecting homes and the vast majority of properties at the park will have new (or converted) heating systems installed for this winter.”
