CARBON ZERO HOUSE - No more utility bills (ever)
Another small but very interesting project in many ways as well as being our first totally Green/Eco project. The Client was a recently widowed lady of retiring age of very modest means wishing to downsize, release some capital and not have to worry about future utility bills.
We advised on the acquisition of this old dairy that was very basically constructed. After obtaining Planning Permission for change of use to a dwelling it was converted into a very cosy two bedroom house for a very economic amount. We installed an air source heat pump, solar panels, heat exchangers, and the ability to send/sell excess generated electricity back to the grid.
Having monitored the electricity consumption over a number of years now this property has shown that it consistently sells more units of electricity back to the grid than what it uses. Happy retirement !
