Cutting bills at a Yorkshire charity

Greenhouses and gardens in Yorkshire

IBECCS was recently called in to advise on options for cutting energy bills at a Yorkshire charity which has extensive gardens and greenhouses open to the public. Following an energy audit, our advice included considering:

  • Replacing oversized LPG boilers with pellet boilers, or using the large grounds area to install heat pump collector loops
  • Adding zonal controls to minimise the risk of heating greenhouses from the boiler (or heat pump) at the same time as opening vents on sunny spring days
  • Incorporating PV into new greenhouse roofs, simultaneously providing summer shading and generating power
  • Upgrading lighting systems with daylight sensors and LEDs
  • Improving access to electricity meters, or installing smart meters, to enable monitoring and targeting of energy use
