The properties feature a number of energy saving measures including a high level of insulation and filtered rainwater tanks capable of reducing water usage from the mains by up to 50 per cent.
The UK’s largest and longest established renewable energy experts Ice Energy Technologies, www.iceenergy.co.uk, have once again been selected for their industry expertise and knowledge, this time to specify, supply and install energy efficient products and systems for a new development of eco-friendly homes near Bridgnorth, Shropshire.
The Oaks, a cul-de-sac of seven, four and five bedroom homes built by ADS Developments at Alveley, qualifies for the new Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), a Government sponsored incentive which rewards homeowners who adopt renewable energy products with a series of fixed income payments over a twenty year period and aims to provide a 12% return on investment.
The properties feature a number of energy saving measures including a high level of insulation and filtered rainwater tanks capable of reducing water usage from the mains by up to 50 per cent. They also include under-floor heating throughout and the latest air source heating, both of which have been supplied by Ice Energy.
Ice Energy Managing Director Andrew Sheldon said “We are delighted to be involved in such a flagship development which is a fantastic example of what developers need to consider for the future. With the rising costs of utilities, developers are duty bound to understand the needs of prospective buyers and address those within the build process which is exactly what ADS have done to their credit.”
David Thompson, spokesman for ADS Developments who specialise in building high quality energy efficient homes to a superior specification, said “We chose Ice Energy as a supply partner because we saw them very much as leading the market in renewable technologies. This is our first development with Ice but we have been extremely pleased with the high level of service they have provided.”
“Having homes that qualify for the RHI is a key differentiator for us within a tough market. Because the products and expertise supplied by Ice Energy have helped to meet that qualification, we can promote these properties as not just homes but long term, environmentally friendly investment opportunities which is obviously a very positive message.”
