Building Regulations Part-L Requirements for Renewable
Are you a house builder? Or just bought a house recently?
Did you know, if your house built after 2008 it should meet with Building regulations 2008 Part-L ?
The Building Regulations Part-L states that new dwellings constructed in Ireland must generate least 10kWh of thermal emery per year for every m2 of floor area Or 4kWh of electric energy for every m2 of the floor area per year or this combination, which gives an equivalent.
Because the Electrical Heating is 2.5 Times More Efficient than heating with water, therefore with a Solar PV, you can meet with the Part-L for less.
- A new 300m2 dwelling must generate 1,200kWh of Electrical Energy.
- 300 x 4kWh = 1,200kWh
- A new 300m2 dwelling must generate 3,000kWh of Thermal Energy.
- 300 x 10kWh = 3,000kWh
