Baxi Ecogen micro-CHP case study
Terry, his wife and their son live in a detached, four year old
house in Preston. They were among the first to have a Baxi
Ecogen installed in November 2006 and the unit is being
monitored by the Carbon Trust to measure its energy
efficiency, electrical generation and carbon savings.
The unit was installed in the garage by a local registered gas
installer. “The installation took about two days and was very
similar to a standard boiler installation. The difference is that
a qualified electrician was needed to do the electrical
connections” says Terry.
“I have always shopped around to get the best deal from my
energy supplier, so I chose a provider that would buy back
the extra electricity we generate and don’t use. We saw
financial benefits as soon as the unit was installed.
