The hosts of this property have extensively refurbished an 1850s traditional Cornish granite cottage, installing under floor heating and an inverter driven ground source heat pump. The heat pump is powered by solar PV. The hosts have also installed a Wattstor energy management system to trial using the ground source heat pipework as a thermal store through the summer months to store excess PV generation.
