Agents Notes: On the rear roof of the property there are 14 solar panels, generating approximately 3.5 megawatt hours per year. These panels feed the Tesla battery, so the house can continue to use stored solar energy through the night and into overcast days. Electricity is sold back to the National Grid. In winter, depending on your electricity tariff, the battery can be charged at cheap rate overnight to support electricity usage during the day. The Vaillant ecoTec plus gas boiler was installed in October 2023, adding to the overall energy-efficiency of the property.
