Everhot and the Environment
We are green even when you scratch below the surface. Everhot was conceived by a Gloucestershire mill owner to make use of the small amount of spare energy produced by his water turbine. This principle of conserving energy is at the heart of Everhot’s design philosophy.
Everhot also believe in local manufacturing and offsetting any damage our manufacturing causes. To this end all our cookers are assembled in Gloucestershire from parts that are almost exclusively supplied from the UK using energy that we largely generate ourselves.
Our Head Office at Coaley Mill is powered by a 25kW water turbine which was installed in 1978 and we supplement this with a heat pump and a 10kW solar array.
The Everhot factory is a new BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) ‘Excellent’ rated building which has been further enhanced by the fitting of a 50kW solar array. To make sure any energy shortfall is accounted for we have recently planted 10,000 native trees on a 12 acre site within one mile of our factory – we can genuinely say we are a carbon negative company by a considerable margin.
Do you generate your own power?
Whether you generate power via solar, wind or water power or, like the vast majority of people, use the national grid, it makes sense to choose an appliance that has been designed to minimise energy consumption.
Not only does the Everhot use a small amount of power, it uses it in a way that suits electricity generation. It trickle feeds small amounts in, rather than demanding large spikes of electricity which overloads both home producers and national networks. Obviously reducing energy consumption directly feeds through to lower running costs.
If you are one of the many thousands of households who have invested in solar panels (or wind or water power) you probably have an active interest in how your energy is being used and are benefitting from the government’s FIT scheme (feed in tariff).
As well as getting paid for generating electricity there is a large financial benefit in using that energy in your own home.
An Everhot range cooker provides controllable kitchen heat and cooking throughout the year and was specifically designed for use with renewables.
A 2 oven Everhot plugs into a standard 13 amp socket and uses on average 500W of energy. This closely matches the output of a 4kW solar installation, as well as having the ability to ‘sleep’ at night when solar is unavailable and wake up with the sun. By replacing an existing oil-fired range large savings can be achieved whilst still receiving the government’s FIT tariff.
