Turn a homein to a green powerhouse
Imagine getting paid every time you switch on your central heating; a mini power station in every home generating heat, hot water and electricity while earning up to £400 by feeding excess back into the National Grid.
E.ON has announced an exclusive deal to bring the next generation of the low carbon WhisperGen micro-combined heat and power unit to Britain’s homes. WhisperGen can be best described as a mini-power station. It is roughly the same size as a dishwasher and replaces a standard gas boiler in a conventional central heating system, generating heat and electricity at the same time.
Don Leiper, managing director of E.ON’s Energy Services business, says: ““It’s a unique technology for the 21st century and will help reduce customer bills and carbon emissions. We’ll be ramping up production in the next few years, mass-producing this technology.”
