Passivhaus – Chippenham
Passivhaus, literally passive house in English, refers to buildings created to rigorous energy efficient design standards to maintain an almost constant temperature. Passivhaus buildings are so well constructed, insulated and ventilated that they retain heat from the sun and the activities of their occupants, requiring very little additional heating or cooling.
Greenacre Renewable Energy Ltd was commissioned to install a 10kWp Solar PV system on the beautiful metal seamed roof.
The system included three individual 3.6kW ABB inverters, which in turn were connected to three individual Solar iBoost PV Diverters. These are used to divert any unused solar energy to heat the water in a Thermal store.
