Boiler boost for high flats

TWO high-rise tower blocks are to be fitted with a £2.1 million super boiler in an attempt to slash residents’ energy bills.

Tenants of Greendykes and Wauchope House in Craigmillar will see their bills halved because of the new communal device.

The move comes after Leith’s Cables Wynd House – known as the Banana Flats – was fitted with a £2.25m boiler last month.

Some residents had been paying as much as £720 per year in heating alone.
