Jersey's social housing heating updated to electric

The heating system in Jersey's social housing properties is being updated.

The States of Jersey is currently updating properties on the island as part of a £6m project.

In Clos Glosset, 116 properties are currently having electric heating installed to replace a 40-year-old oil tank.

Housing Minister Deputy Sean Power said: "It needs replacing, we have oil leaks, environmentally it's a nightmare, so we're changing."

He said: "We know from talking to people who had an old oil system that their heating bills have actually come down."
