Holiday park is going green

Have your say

A Peak District holiday park is going green with the help of a Matlock based eco specialist.

Hoe Grange Holidays, in Brassinton, is using two Stiebel Eltron WWK300 Air Source Heat Pumps to provide hot water for two purpose built log cabins.

The cabins used to run on an expensive LPG gas boiler system, but the environmentally friendly owners David and Felicity Brown wanted an alternative green solution to minimise the carbon impact, as well reduce the high running costs.

They contacted leading green energy installers The Renewable Shop, in Matlock, who specialises in the supply, installation and maintenance of renewable and energy efficient solutions.

The Renewable Shop conducted a full evaluation of the site to gauge which green energy systems would complement the site and its energy needs.

Jacob Johnson, of The Renewable Shop said: “Following our site investigation we concluded that solar thermal could provide their domestic hot water requirements in the summer months, but additional back up would be required in spring, autumn and winter seasons.

“We considered backing up the solar thermal with immersion heaters, due to the surplus daytime electricity from the solar PV and future addition of the 10kW wind turbine.

“The WWK300 utilises warm ambient air, from internal environments and converts the energy from the air into hot water, through the heat pump process.”

Hoe Grange Holidays recently received a gold award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme.

David said: “We are passionate about the environment and can now demonstrate to guests how easy and efficient renewable energies are to install and maintain.”

Merseyside based Stiebel Eltron UK provides convenient technical solutions for every aspect of renewable energies, hot water, air conditioning and central heating.
