Turn a homein to a green pow­er­house

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
