When Biminster Homes began developing the Woodlands site at Edney Common in Essex on behalf on William Thompson Homes, mains gas was not available in the village. Biminster considered the range of alternative fuel options available for
heating and hot water and selected LPG from Calor.
As a regional house builder with a small project team, Biminster Homes needed an option that was viable from a cost
and ease-of-installation perspective. This was the first time the company had developed an off-grid site, so it was important it made the right decision to encourage prospective buyers.
