The customer

Fairview New Homes specialises in developing brownfield sites and derelict land to create attractive living environments. Their development, City House in Croydon, combines a mixture of privately owned, socially tenanted and shared ownership apartments and studios, and the development generates its own energy from wind turbines.

The challenge

The City House development required an energy metering service which would enable the accurate billing of the energy consumed by the residents.

The solution

Switch2 was selected by Fairview as the supplier for the metering service. The company is one of the UK’s largest suppliers of metering and billing technologies and services for multi-tenancy buildings. Metering technology from Switch2 provides residents with affordable and controllable warmth while creating environmental benefits through greater energy efficiency and carbon savings.

The company is operating energy-efficient intelligent metering for electricity, heating and hot water, system administration and an individualised billing service at the 319 unit residential and commercial complex.

The outcome

Residents at City House apartments are now benefiting from affordable, lower-carbon heating and hot water thanks to the advanced metering technology in place.

This is the first time that Switch2 has worked with Fairview, and energy-saving projects at two other Fairview developments are also in the pipeline.

Switch2 has evolved from a metering and maintenance operation, predominantly for local authority clients operating large district heating schemes, into total energy service provision. Its services include the design, installation and maintenance of green communal energy schemes for public and private sector clients.
