•  Unique initiative saves over £225,000 of taxpayers money
• 1,100 tonnes of harmful CO2 prevented from being released
• Eco friendly project modernises key buildings

This week Enfield Council announced that, thanks to several environmental projects around the borough, over £225,000 of taxpayers money has been saved.

The ‘Invest to save’ initiative has also prevented over 1,100 tonnes of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere. This is the equivalent to a jet liner flying 2¼ times around the world, helping the Council do its bit in the fight against climate change and to create cleaner neighbourhoods and Strong Communities, one of the council's priorities.

The energy efficiency projects include lighting upgrades and movement sensors, draught proofing, boiler management controls, pipework and building insulation, voltage optimisation units and variable speed drives, mainly in council buildings and schools.

It has been funded with £300,000 from both the government and Council, with the financial savings generated by the projects re-invested in new schemes. Since 2010 over £1 million has been invested in more than 90 energy saving projects at 46 different sites across Enfield.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Regeneration & Business, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said “This is a brilliant win win situation.

“Enfield Council is working with partners to reduce the amount of harmful pollutants which escape into our atmosphere. As a bonus, we are saving taxpayers money as well."
