About this group
FC United of Manchester is a supporter-owned and supporter-run community football club. It plans to build a new ground in Moston, Greater Manchester, and as part of this wants to introduce a district heating plan.
This would involve setting up a community energy company in partnership with neighbouring organisations to provide a very energy efficient heating scheme that could offer energy savings of up to 30 per cent, and potentially lower bills.
The ultimate ambition would be to extend the scheme to neighbouring homes to help reduce fuel poverty, which the club believes is particularly important in the Moston area where more than a third of houses are socially rented.
