Energy Prices 😵‍💫

01-04-2022 | Category: General News

Good Afternoon,

Here we are on the eve of the 1st April, the day our energy prices are looking to increase by up to 50%.  Worrying times, especially after what has been going on the last 18 months. Will there be an end to all, soon? Check out this link for more info about the news on energy prices. What can we do? Are Bee Bikes our answer?

Over the last few months we have been having lots of mind showers. We are looking to find alternatives for our electricity and gas usage. Yes we are looking at Solar panels! However there is the added issue of having to apply for planning permission as we are located in a conservation area. 

We are also looking at Air Source heat pumps, problem is we need the solar for this! Why? They appear the use a fair bit of electricity? Using the grid would increase our cost even more. 

Head scratching.

 

 

After plenty of head scratching we have come up with the Bee Bike! Are Bee Bikes our answer? The Bee Bike will be installed in each bedroom. If you as guest want to watch TV, make a brew or work a bit on your laptop…….go for a little cycle on the Bee Bike to generate your energy. The advantage of the Bee Bike is that they are incredible light to use and also generate a lot of energy with minimum effort. A short 20 minute ride will be enough for 2 brews, 20 minutes TV and 30 minutes lap top time. Free bottles of water and extra towels will be supplied in each room, if you are unable to do a cycle, we can arrange a fully charge battery at an additional £20 per night.

The Bee Bikes will be installed as of today Friday 1st April 2022. We love to hear your thoughts or if you are looking for any more info contact us.
