Over the past few years, there have been a lot of conversations about environmentally friendly and sustainable technologies. The combination of ever-increasing energy prices and the fear of overusing fossil fuels to generate power has led more people to look for ecologically sustainable alternatives for energy sources.
That’s why we’re proud to announce that Silver Bay is the first holiday park in the UK to offer eco-friendly holiday homes fully equipped with solar panels and heat pumps. These upgraded lodges will be available for purchase at our brand new holiday park Silver Bay Lligwy shortly. Not only does this allow the chance to cut your carbon footprint, you’ll also enjoy reduce bills and outgoings.
How does it work?
Solar panels are usually placed on the roof of your holiday home, ideally in a location that gets the maximum sunlight throughout the day. These panels absorb the light and convert that energy into electricity to power the home and also heat up the water tank.
A common misconception about solar panels is that they only work properly if they are exposed to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine. We can confidently tell you that that is simply not true, even on cloudy days the panels can generate enough energy to produce electricity and hot water for all guests to enjoy.
Why should you invest in an eco-friendly holiday home?
Solar panels and heat pumps can reduce carbon emissions by up to 73%, equating to a saving of up to 511 tones of carbon emissions per year. Solar panels are a great investment for your holiday homes as they reduce the cost of electricity meaning you don’t have to worry about how much energy you use while you’re away. After your panels are installed the only thing you will notice is the savings you will be making. Unlike generators, solar panels create no noise pollution, so you don’t have to worry about an annoying buzzing sound ruining your holiday.
