Could new-build homes be another solution to the UK’s renewable ambitions? Here, we explore why the construction of new homes is creating renewable energy possibilities, and why we must utilise this opportunity. All new-build homes have the structural support for solar panels, meaning that you can have your own panels fitted after or even before you move in. Housebuilding companies can also offer sustainable options to help with renewable energy creation and increase energy efficiency. Directing properties for maximum sunlight harvesting means that solar panels can be even more effective when used. The cost of solar panels can also be offset within 12 years. This means that for individuals or families moving into a new house, the upfront investment can be incredibly beneficial in the long run. New-build homes also benefit from energy-saving installations. Most developments are created with double glazing windows as standard. Quality home building businesses will use water-restricting devices and create airtight homes. These further save energy and avoids any waste.
