Thanks to Saltire’s Eco Division sheltered housing residents in North Lanarkshire are enjoying reduced energy bills and carbon footprints.

In partnership with long-term customer North Lanarkshire Council, Saltire is currently working to install air source heat pumps and battery storage for solar panels at a retirement complex housing in Shotts. With a programme of installations which is set to complete in 2026, Saltire is continuing its long-term partnership with the council, while pursuing its own shift towards renewable technologies, working sustainably, and decarbonisation of the built environment.

Saltire Facilities Management is one of the most experienced and trusted names when it comes to renewables technologies, and has vast experience installing air and ground source heat pumps, solar panels, electric vehicle charging points, and solar battery systems. As part of the United Capital decarbonisation investment group, Saltire is at the forefront of decarbonising the built environment, along with sister company McGill, which is the foremost installer of solar panels across the North East of Scotland.

Eco Operations Manager, who manages the project, commented, “This partnership with North Lanarkshire Council is having a wonderful impact on their residents, and it’s fantastic to see. Our Eco Division is so experienced that the installation is a quick and smooth process, and that’s a big consideration with vulnerable residents such as older people or those with disabilities. We work incredibly hard to complete each installation in one day.

“Air source heat pumps are highly efficient, and residents see their energy costs drop. It’s great to see these residents really play their part in building a more sustainable community, and we’re seeing more interest in both domestic and commercial air source heat pumps with every passing week.”

Saltire Installations Director Alan Murray commented, “Saltire is already one of the go-to companies for renewable technologies, and this is the direction the company will continue to go in. Many of our most forward-thinking public sector clients are making large-scale plans to implement air source heat pumps, solar panels, and electric vehicle charging points, and we’re delighted to partner with them. Decarbonisation needs to happen now, and along with the rest of the United Capital group, we’ll continue to play our part in that process, through new and existing renewables technologies.”
