A new project in Cornwall will see 400 poorly-insulated homes retrofitted with energy-saving technology to reduce homeowners’ energy bills. 

OVO Energy Solutions will team up with Cornwall Council to deliver around 1,000 whole house retrofit measures on the project. These will include the installation of new insulation, air source heat pumps, solar PV, draught proofing, high retention storage heaters and double glazing.
