A large outbuilding serves as the energy room and houses a super-efficient 'Firefly hybrid power system'. This provides electricity to efficiently power the house and its every day appliances such as a tumble dryer and washing machine suitable for everyday family use.
This hybrid power system is currently on the land being retained by the current owners , so will need to be moved off the retained land by the new owners of the property and will need to be done within the first two years of ownership of Haccombe Heights.
Another shed located close to the bungalow houses a backup diesel powered generator for peace of mind and also is used as a log store.
