Launch of ZEB Homes

23 July 2014 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Breakfast Seminar on building a zero energy bill home

Electric Corby invites you to be part of the CleanTech Programme with this ‘switched on thinking’ event launching our Zero Energy Bill Homes.

We have developed and built a series of new homes that look like a traditional semi-detached house; but beneath the surface, contain well insulated walls and lofts, complete with an array of hybrid PVT (Photovoltaic and solar thermal) panel.   These are ultra low maintenance and unlike wind turbines, are virtually ‘fit and forget’. What’s more, all the ‘workings’ are hidden in the roof space.  In addition, each home has a state-of-the-art home energy automation system which is remotely programmable.  These homes are sold with a guarantee* that there will be no energy bill – yes that’s right ZERO BILLS!


  • Electric Corby – the catalyst behind the project
  • Newform Energy –  who developed the “turbocharged” renewable technology installed in the homes
  • Lagan Homes – who are building the homes
  • JSJS Lighwave – making the smooth smart home technology at your finger tips
  • Discussion about house builders and the housing markets appetite for low or no energy bill homes
  • Tour of ZEB homes


Booking is essential, includes free breakfast, email cleantech@electriccorby.co.uk for more information and to register
 *zero energy bills are guaranteed for the first 2 years. Thereafter, energy bills will remain low and may remain zero depending on general energy prices
