Property company Public Sector Plc has unveiled plans to construct a net zero carbon neighbourhood in Kent.
The firm will deliver six ‘zero carbon’ modular family homes for the rental market in Sittingbourne – they will be able to achieve carbon-neutrality thanks to their air-tight, well-insulated walls and will feature photovoltaic solar panels to generate their own electricity.
They will also have hot water heated by an air source heat pump to further reduce electricity consumption.
Adam Cunnington, CEO of Public Sector Plc, said: “Our country not only faces a crisis in the quantity of homes but also the quality, as well as a global climate emergency.
“We’re proud to be leading the way with a new generation of housing which helps to tackle these problems. The development at Oak Road marks the launch of our new PRS brand LetLife and is the first of three energy-efficient housing developments we are delivering in the next 12 months.”
