Would You Like to Live in a House with no Energy Bills?

By Victoria Udrea | April 2, 2024

Tilia Homes and Hopkins Homes have recently joined Octopus Energy's 'Zero Bills' program, offering this unique opportunity on several properties.

As the cost-of-living crisis continues to bite, we are delighted to join forces with Octopus Energy to offer drastically reduced home running costs for our customers. Not only will this partnership deliver cost certainty to homeowners in a volatile energy market, but we believe it will also help to positively impact how people live sustainably in their homes across the UK.

'Zero Bills' is an innovative smart tariff that allows customers to live in homes equipped with cutting-edge green technology, ensuring a sustainable and cost-effective energy solution - with no energy bills, guaranteed.

The new homes at Tilia Homes' Landimore Park development in Northampton and Hopkins Homes' Church View in Bramford, Suffolk, come equipped with advanced green technology, which includes roof-mounted solar panels, air-source heat pumps, and home batteries.

'Zero Bills' is made possible thanks to Octopus' advanced technology platform, Kraken. This innovative platform seamlessly connects to the clean energy devices installed in your home and intelligently optimizes their energy usage. The result? A remarkable zero-bill experience.

Tilia Homes and Hopkins Homes are dedicated to decreasing carbon emissions and investigating innovative methods to integrate state-of-the-art technology, materials, and designs into developments to enhance energy efficiency.

Just like Tilia Homes and Hopkins Homes properties, the 'Zero Bills' homes and technology are backed by a manufacturer warranty, a two-year guarantee from the housebuilder, and an additional eight years of coverage from the UK's National Home Builders Council (NHBC).

As the energy grid evolves, so does our ability to revolutionise homeownership. With our 'Zero Bills' smart proposition, Tilia Homes and Hopkins Homes homeowners can enjoy not only energy bill-free homes, but also a genuine shift towards sustainable living. By leveraging state-of-the-art technology and renewable energy, we can make green living the standard across the industry.

According to the recent 'Watt A Save' report by the Home Builders Federation (HBF), purchasers of newly built properties can expect to save an average of £2,200** on energy bills and significantly decrease carbon emissions by over 2.5 tonnes per property annually compared to specific older properties available on the market. Modern construction techniques, improved wall insulation, and increased cavity wall space are some factors attributed to the energy savings.

Intending to provide more financial advantages to homeowners, mortgage lenders are showing a growing interest in offering specialized green mortgage products for new-build homes. This is due to the homes' impressive energy efficiency ratings and reduced operating expenses.

Octopus Energy has accredited nearly 1,000 homes across the UK by partnering with developers and housing providers. Its accredited plots cover various housing options, including affordable, social, shared ownership, private ownership, and rented housing. The company aims to deliver 50,000 'Zero Bills' homes globally by 2025.
