Sustainability Features

1. Micro-generation: 16 photovoltaic solar panels on two aspects of house roof, rated at a total installed capacity of 3.84 Kilo-watts, generate power both for home consumption and exporting the the national grid, and currently provide Feed in tariff income of £1,400 per year on average, which would be transferred to the property's new owner.

2. Ground Water Supply

A submersible pump installed in 2006 in a 20'/6m deep well sunk below the driveway delivers clean water via a pressure vessel to storage tanks in the loft. This water then feeds the shower, hand basins, washing machine, dishwasher and fishpond (but not the kitchen sink). This has reduced consumption of the metered mains water supplied by Thames Water by approx. 150 cu.m per year for the property's current owner.

3. Collection of Rainwater and Grey Water: Water for irrigating the garden is pumped automatically from a 3,000 litre reservoir beneath the greenhouse floor to taps in the greenhouse and garden. The reservoir is fed from rainwater pipes and supplemented if necessary by waste water piped from the bathroom and kitchen.
