The house will have these energy sources :-

  • Mains Electricity
  • Thermal Solar – with storage
  • Solar Electricity – Feeding a low voltage DC system
  • optional Ground source heat-pump

We hope the electricity will not be needed for generating heating (space and water) as the Energy Stored from the Solar panels should be sufficient in the long term. If there is insufficient solar energy and electicity use is too high then we will install a ground source heat pump using the pipes installed during ground works (pipes cost very little and installation is easy while the ground is dug up for the earth tubes).
