Renewable energy solution specialist SEH Commercial has completed an installation in a new build property in Suffolk that will generate £40,000 through the feed-in-tariff (FiT) scheme for its owners over 25 years.

The company installed a ground-source heat pump (GSHP) and a photovoltaic system in the property owned by Mr. and Mrs. Julian Cusack.

Simon Fowler from SEH Commercial said the 14kW Dimplex GSHP using three bore-holes was installed due to lack of space with each bore-hole 100m deep.

“The GSHP is the perfect solution for connecting to the property’s under-floor heating system due to its lower temperature and greater surface area to dissipate the heat. The GSHP should save around 750kg of Carbon per annum.”

Simon Fowler noted: “The PV system should generate an estimated 2487kWh per annum (based on independent software) or 2460kWh per annum based on Governments Standard Assessment Procedure (SAPs).”

The Cusack’s will be eligible for a FiT rate of 37.8p, which will give them an estimated £930 per annum from the FiT, £37 from the export tariff and £207 savings on their electricity bill per annum, giving an annual benefit of £1,173.

Taking inflation into account the Cusacks should see a benefit of £44,880 over the 25-years of the FiT. 

They will also save approximately 1058kg of carbon per year from the PV system.
