This year we replaced the rather temperamental Calor gas boiler with a brand new hot water system with a hot water tank and power shower.
From June, the water in the tank (and the rest of the hut supply) is heated by green energy as we have just completed the solar panels installation on the Barn roof. We can still produce enough power to heat the water for the Ty Bach – even on a cloudy day!
The hob in the hut is still gas powered but the natural gas bottle lasts a long time. And the rest of the heating is supplemented by the wood burner, so at least we are a bit more ‘off-grid’ these days.
