How Hot?

The heat network for Swaffham Prior will enable households in the village to disconnect their oil boiler, oil tank and whilst using their existing central heating system, go onto renewable energy.

How? The project has been designed as a high-temperature system, meaning that in winter it will be able to deliver temperatures above 70c.

Why has it been designed this way? This is a similar temperature to standard oil boilers, so most homes in the village will be able to connect without upgrading their central heating system.

What does the customer contract promise? The heat supply agreement (customer contract) safeguards the following temperatures.
