The site is north facing so the house is perfectly orientated to north. Due to the lack of available services on the site the client opted for a totally of grid house. PV panels provide electricity with a backup generator. Water is extracted from a borehole and there is a biolytical sewerage treatment system.
The house is super insulated with double glazing throughout to minimize any load on the PV system in terms of heating or cooling requirements
