On with the solar panels

Renewable energy solutions aren’t just the smart answer, they are essential to the new build market –

A SAP rating is required in order to produce a Predicted Energy Assessment and an On Construction Energy Performance Certificate.

Building Regulations require that a SAP calculation and a Predicted EPC is submitted for new dwellings prior to the commencement of work.

A SAP calculation indicates a score from 1 to 100+ for the annual energy cost based on:

  • The elements of structure
  • Heating and hot water system
  • Internal lighting
  • Renewable technologies used in the home.

The higher the score the lower the running costs.

SAP calculations allow comparison to be made of the energy running costs of dwellings anywhere in the UK. This is achieved because the calculations are predominantly location independent and are based upon a notional standard occupancy that overcomes variations associated with physical location and the differing ways in which people utilise their homes.

We have included in roof Solar PV panels on our build which will provide the house with electricity bringing down their dependency on the national grid and non renewable sources.
