Energy Efficient Landlords Plan Ahead

29th January 2014

Prior preparation and renewable energy could be key for landlords needing to comply with new government legislation from April 2018. The Energy Act 2011 states that it will be illegal to let any property with an Energy Performance Rating (EPC) of F and G from that date.

A range of action is necessary to ensure residential and non-residential buildings reach the mark and TGE Group is already helping commercial landlords reach EPC E ratings with the installation of low energy lighting, solar PV and renewable heat, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and improving environmental credentials.

“An estimated 18% of non-residential buildings fall below the accepted EPC E rating, so there is a fair amount of work to be done on commercial buildings to ensure they are compliant before April 2018. We are helping landlords with a range of technologies including low energy lighting, renewable energy, management and monitoring, and energy efficiency measures,” explains Sales Director, Stephen Davies. “Not only can we help reach required EPC levels, but we can make buildings less expensive to run and more attractive to potential tenants, whilst securing a 20 year income for the landlord through the FiT and RHI schemes. Our funding options will also make the proposition achievable for all landlords.”
