Britain gets its 1st “zero bills” estate
It has been announced recently that Britain will get its first ground breaking, zero bills estate. Unique in every sense, it has been said this estate will in fact leave its home owners £1000 per year better off. This will be achieved from the fact the solar-panelled roofs will create all the electricity these properties need - and still have enough electricity spare to sell back to the national grid.
With the properties all Five-bed, it is estimated that a similar five-bed, 141 square metre, detached house in the same area costs about £960 a year for gas and power. These house in particular should generate so much electricity that excess can be sold for an annual profit of £965 – leaving homeworkers £1,925 better off.
Homebuyers sick of soaring utility bills can choose from seven different property types – then help assemble them themselves from a kit. Owners of electric cars will also be able to get free-fuel motoring by plugging into their own supply.
Though there will be an initial costing, this option will save a great deal of money to owners in the long term. Over time, the money saved will make a substantial difference and leave money in the pockets of owners.
