A crucial factor in the feasibility of renewable energy is whether or not the property sits on the gas grid. The relatively cheap cost of natural gas in the UK makes it hard to justify renewable energy installation on financial grounds if there is an existing supply of gas to the property. If the property does not have a connection to the gas grid, the traditional fuel of choice has been fuel oil or LPG. Fuel oil is not only expensive in itself, delivery charges add to an ever increasing supply cost. You can read more about the cost of fuel oil in our article “One consumer’s view on oil price rises”
In order to maintain fuel security and to protect themselves from future price rises, an ever increasing number of domestic property owners are turning to isoenergy to specify renewable energy systems for their homes.
To assess the feasibility of a renewable energy solution, isoenergy would visit your property, and meet with you to discuss your requirements. We take this opportunity to assess the viability of a sustainable energy system as part of our initial consultation completely free of charge and without obligation.
Below is a selection of projects isoenergy has undertaken at properties not on the gas grid.
The site consists of a farm house with a series of outbuildings and land leading down to the Broads. The clients wished to upgrade the heating system whilst other improvements were carried out to the rest of the house.
