Carbon neutral property unveiled in Manchester
Heating insulation has helped one landlord create what he claims is the first 100 per cent carbon neutral student property.
In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, founder of Beech Properties Stephen Beech described how he has transformed a house in Rusholme using green energy initiatives.
He said: "We've created a completely sealed unit to make the property as energy efficient as possible.
"There are no external vents on the walls or even a letterbox to let any heat escape."
As a result of the modifications, tenants renting out the home will have no energy bills and the landlord can sell back any surplus solar power to the National Grid.
Beech Properties describes itself as a specialised letting agent that manages high standard, energy efficient houses aimed at the student market.
