Energy company SSE is reducing its heat tariff by 4.6% for domestic heat network customers.
The move, which will come into effect on 1st May, is expected to benefit 4,500 customers in England and Scotland.
It reflects “a general downturn in domestic gas prices”, the Big Six supplier said.
Domestic heat networks use a series of insulated pipes to deliver heat, in the form of hot water or steam, to people’s homes from a localised energy centre. This removes the need for each home to have an individual boiler.
Jody Pittaway, SSE’s Heat Networks Manager added: “This price reduction will reassure our domestic heat network customers that we are committed to providing their heat supply at a competitive rate.”
SSE’s domestic heat network customers are located across eight sites in the UK.
