If you want to get your head around solar PV, home batteries, electric cars, and how they work to with each other, Warren’s your man! His philosophy is “make the future we want” and he and his wife Bairbre want to make their daughter’s future as secure as possible by being ahead of the game regarding self-sufficiency. Warren loves technology and he has a wealth of information about solar PV, home batteries and electric cars, all three of which feature in their home, and would be delighted to show you exactly what energy is being generated from the 6.27kW solar array on the roof!
Warren’s enthusiasm is so infectious that you will soon be as hooked, as were two of our home owners at our last Eco Open Houses event. They were so sold on solar and Powerwall that they soon became proud owners of their own system! And that’s what this event is about – inspiring others to become more sustainable, resilient and more self-governing and systems like these, help to enable that to happen.
Last year he added a 14kW Tesla Powerwall 2 battery, one of the first in this country, to their house. The Powerwall stores energy produced by their solar PV and is used to power the house when there is no sun. This, coupled with a home that is energy efficient, means that Warren’s aim to be 100% energy self-sufficient for the summer months should be achievable, and that includes running an electric car!
Come to our first venture into properties in Shoreham and be seriously impressed!
