Wyro Green Homes says it believes it is the first in the UK to sell freehold net zero carbon homes at ‘affordable’ prices.
The development’s first eight ultra-low-energy, zero-carbon freehold homes to come on the market have now been sold.
Judith Jones, Sales Director of Wyro Green Homes, said: “These are ‘A’ EPC Energy Performance ‘100+’ rated energy efficient homes with solar panels, fantastic insulation, triple glazing and much more. . These are exactly the kind of homes that our customers need in an era of ever-increasing fuel and energy costs.
Development Manager Mark Bamer said: “We have worked hard to continually improve the energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of our new homes by introducing new technologies to help reduce CO2 emissions to a net amount. from zero.
“We’ve included a series of energy-saving measures, including air-source heat pumps, solar panels, iBoost solar hot water converters and Passiv Haus-certified triple-glazed window frames, while maintaining the selling price well below the average UK house price, which is now in the region of £275,000.
“We also wanted local residents to be able to get their foot on the homeownership ladder and be among the first in the country to be able to participate in the net-zero carbon housing revolution, so we registered the site with Help to Buy. Wales which allow eligible first time buyers to buy our homes with just a 5% down payment and retain a 20% share.
‘This means you can buy one of our new spacious one bedroom net zero carbon ultra low energy houses with less than £8,000 deposit.’
The company’s latest new homes now also include 5.8kW hours of battery storage allowing homeowners to store excess solar power generated for nighttime use. The houses are also equipped with 7 kW fast chargers for electric vehicles with an Eco Plus setting which allows the car to be fueled “free” with solar energy on sunny days.
“We know EV prices are still too expensive for most buyers right now, but they’re getting cheaper. The biggest hurdle in most people’s minds was the security of having a place to charging an electric vehicle, so we installed those too to help people get on board,” Mark said.
Sister companies SJ Roberts Construction and Lowfield Timber Frame of Marton near Welshpool were the builders and suppliers chosen by Wyro Green Home.
Alan Cound, Site Manager for SJ Roberts, said: “It was an absolute pleasure to be the first to build these type of homes, we are proud to be involved in the project seeing local companies producing the first homes. Net Zero Carbon for many locals at very reasonable prices.”
