The British prime minister committed £160 million to upgrade ports and factories in northern England, Scotland, and Wales in order to build wind turbines.
I'm pleased that the UK will (hopefully) see much cheaper electricity costs, as that will greatly encourage consumers to go green, including:
- Buying an EV
- Switch to electric heating
- Lower monthly bills as most things are electric
So they'll need to switch to an electric boiler.
I hope that the government helps pay for the switch.
There appears to be no electric boilers that can be fitted alongside a conventional boiler.
I'd really like to see boiler manufacturers create a hybrid boiler, capable of using both gas and electric and able to switch in real time depending on local electricity (surplus or not).
lastly, is there such a thing as an electric hot water tank which can use the heated water for the radiators?
