Octopus Energy has recently announced an exciting new partnership with The Hill Group, a renowned housebuilder.

Together, they will embark on a project to construct 89 remarkable homes that are not only powered by solar energy but also offer residents the incredible benefit of zero energy bills.

These innovative houses will be equipped with a range of cutting-edge low-carbon technologies, including solar panels, home storage batteries, and heat pumps. The combined capacity of these technologies will surpass the energy requirements of each home, ensuring an abundance of clean and sustainable energy. Octopus Energy’s advanced Kraken platform will seamlessly integrate and optimize these technologies, further enhancing their efficiency.

To cater to the diverse needs of homeowners, the size of the batteries installed will vary between 9.5kWh and 13.5kWh, depending on the size of the property. Similarly, the number of solar panels will be tailored to the property’s dimensions, ranging from 18 to 24 panels.

Situated in the picturesque Hollymead Square in Newport Essex, these exceptional properties will consist of two to five bedroom houses and two bedroom bungalows. What sets these homes apart is the guarantee that residents will not have to pay any energy bills for a minimum of five years, providing them with unparalleled financial relief and peace of mind.

Out of the 89 houses, 64 will be available for purchase on the open market, while the remaining 25 will be allocated for affordable rent and shared ownership through the esteemed social housing provider, Clarion House Group.

This venture follows Octopus Energy’s recent endeavour in Stafford, West Midlands, where they commenced the construction of three remarkable ‘zero bills’ homes. These homes are set to hit the market this month, showcasing the company’s commitment to revolutionizing the housing industry. Octopus Energy has set an ambitious goal of constructing 50,000 zero bills homes worldwide by 2025, demonstrating their dedication to creating sustainable and cost-effective living solutions.

Octopus Energy’s partnership with The Hill Group will further accelerate their mission of creating sustainable and affordable housing. The Hill Group, known for their expertise in construction and development, will bring valuable insights and resources to the table. Together, they aim to not only meet but exceed the target of constructing 50,000 zero bills homes worldwide by 2025. This collaboration marks a significant step towards a greener future and a testament to the power of innovative partnerships in driving positive change.
