HOW WILL RENEWABLES INTEGRATE INTO YOUR FUTURE PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT PLANS?
There are many positives to installing home renewables, like enjoying the independence and knowledge that they are helping maintain the environment – but have you thought about storage and requirements specific to your property? Or how renewable products work in accordance to your land?
Whether you’re an architect, self-builder or business owner it’s important to take these aspects into consideration during the design process, and as early as possible.
THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
It is good idea to consult with Green Square when the initial designs and ideas for property are being drawn up, as you want to invest in the correct renewable energy solutions at this stage, as it is tough to upgrade or fit these back in to the property at a later date. For example, flexibility and longevity of materials, insulation and natural ventilation, thermal mass, daylight distribution (for use with solar) are things that are important to get right.
If you are working with builders and contractors, an idea is to try to incorporate these ideas or theories to them, to form the best system and make your property as energy efficient as possible – they may be knowledgeable in renewables already.
CONSIDERING LOCATION AND EXISTING USAGE
Organising your own personal renewable energy system is a process that needs to include analysing you existing electricity usage, understanding the technology options available, reading about your local codes and requirements and deciding whether you would like to operate your own system on or off the electric grid for your site. Where possible, it’s also good to be aware of the possible impact of your location and how your building or land is manageable.
The first step in finding out which renewable energy products are right for your property will be assessing your electricity needs. This will enable you to determine the size (costs) of the system you require and how your specific energy needs change through the day and over the year.
BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE FROM DAY ONE
Making sure that we are planning ahead, and ensuring the future can be renewable by creating the most efficient energy system is the most strategic option for architects and designers alike. Despite many buildings and properties not using renewable energy right now, this will change, especially as the UK Government is ensuring this happens.
In the near future, renewable energy will be supplied in significant amounts, which of course, is great news. It will be on a bigger scheme like nationally using major wind farms and other large scale projects. As well as on a smaller level with individuals creating their own individual energy systems. Combined, the efforts will allow us to move forward together and make the most of our renewables. Hence highlighting the importance of including renewable energy in your building and project plans from day one.

EARN MONEY WITH RENEWABLE GREEN ENERGY
THE Renewable Heating Incentive Scheme
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government led scheme to reduce the carbon footprint. It can help lower energy bills and you could receive quarterly cash payments over seven years if you install an eligible renewable heating technology to become more self-sufficient and, in fact, earn an extra income.
By installing Green Square products you will be eligible to claim a fixed income for every kilowatt hour of heat you produce. The average household uses around 15 to 20,000kWh of heat a year, the RHI pays cash incentives directly to the customers, that could mean thousands of pounds in your pocket!
