Hyne Town House

When Hyne Town House, a South Devon residential care home, wanted to lower its energy use, an energy efficiency loan helped.

The business case

After a Carbon Trust representative advised the home on what could be done to make it more energy efficient, a loan helped put the ideas into action. With a £12,500 loan, the home was able to install solar tubes to produce much of its hot water, as well as switching to energy efficient light bulbs.

It expects to save £4,800 a year, reducing its CO2 output by 31.2 tonnes.
