When it comes to retrofitting a house for energy efficiency, you'll be amazed at just how much is possible in an ordinary 1970s bungalow. Join us for a visit to an extraordinary home, with a rare chance to see some clever energy technologies in action, including free, zero-carbon motoring.
Starting with an energy rating of E, the owners have transformed their home over the past five years, to achieve an A+ rating. They've improved everything about this property.
Here are some of the features you'll see:
- Tesla Powerwall ‘grid tied’ battery power system, powered by PV panels integrated into their roof, which runs their home and electric car
- A new Victron Energy ‘off grid’ power system
- Electric car
- Solar PV
- A high level of insulation and airtightness
- Low-energy appliances
The homeowners will be on hand to explain all the steps they took, how much it cost, and what the real-life payback periods are, from the 'quick win' cheaper adaptations up to the PV Powerwall system and electric car.
There are two time options for this open home visit. This booking is for the 5pm slot.
