CHA Power Limited (CHAP) is a wholly owned subsidiary company set up by Clydebank Housing Association in 2005 to provide energy-efficient and affordable heat and hot water to the residents of Radnor Park, Clydebank.
This subsidiary was developed in order to replace tenants ageing and expensive electric storage heating systems. The CHP scheme reduces energy bills and combats both greenhouse gases and fuel poverty by using a heat network supplying more than one building or customer. The gas-fired engines at the power station, located next to the flats, provide all seven multi-storey buildings with continuous heating and hot water for a fixed price per week. Prices are subject to review on a yearly basis.
