AGENTS NOTE ENERGY EFFICIENCY
The vendor advises the house is extremely well insulated and heated by wood pellets with solar contribution. The fuel cost per year is approximately £400 for both heating and hot water with the Renewable Heat Incentive paying the owner £1800 per year for the next 5 years. The solar thermal panels generate approximately 1500kWh per year which saves about £225 of electricity. The house has 100% LED lighting making the electricity bills low with roughly 1/3 of electricity consumed produced by the 2.5kWp solar PV system – about 2200kWh per year. The feed in tariff pays in the region of £335 per year for the next 23 years and electricity saving comes to about £300 giving an annual benefit from the PV system of - £600. The solar PV panels have a device installed which diverts unused electricity generated to the water tank – thus saving a further £100 or so per year. All in all this means the property earns about £1200 per year from the combination of efficiency and government incentives.
