Our commitment to sustainable practices expands beyond our farming and wildlife preservation practices, to also include the conservation of natural resources (energy).
Multiple ground source heat pumps are in place across the Estate. These utilize pipes buried deep underground to extract stored heat, providing one of the most energy efficient ways of heating properties.
We have solar panels on many roof tops around the Estate. Most of these generate electricity for on-site use, with excess energy being put into the grid. The other solar panels are solar-thermal, using the sun to make hot water for our properties.
We also use our land to transform wind into energy, with the Estate being one of four farms that form Roade Wind Farm, visible from the M1 and run by EDF, providing green energy to the local grid.
