Energy Performance Certificate - A-Rating

Our new homes at The Hops have an EPC ‘A’ rating, the most energy efficient band, so you have peace of mind that your new home will help you to achieve low energy bills.

Our new homes are, on average, up to 32% more energy efficient than current building regulations.

An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) shows the current and potential energy rating of a property, known as a ‘SAP’ rating. ‘SAP’ stands for Standard Assessment Procedure and is the Government’s recommended system for producing a home energy rating.


fibre Solar PV

A bespoke Solar Photovoltaic system is installed by our sister company, Abel Energy Ltd. The system consists of monocrystalline black panels and highly efficient inverters. Buyers will own their PV system, benefiting from the free electricity it will generate and potentially benefit from the government guaranteed index linked Feed in Tariff and Export Tariff over a 20 year period.
