The property has recently undergone massive upgrades to be sustainable with renewable energy, with an emphasis on the 'photovoltaic' or solar energy. Solar panels generate electricity for the entire property. Using the MyLight system, with virtual battery, the excess energy is resold. The heating system is also powered by solar panels and there is a heat pump with separate thermostat for the apartment on the ground floor and the living area on the first floor. Hot water is produced by the latest boiler, also solar powered! There is double glazing throughout the property and very high levels of insulation to the walls, ceiling, roof 34cm and basement. Septic tank and electricity. Energy balance (DPE) available.
