Eco Open Houses

Started: Summer 2009
Contact: Julia Waterlow

In 2009 and 2010 we held two successful Open Eco Houses, where members of the public were invited to visit the homes of people who had implemented a range of energy generating, energy saving and ecological measures. The homes ranged from draughty Victorian houses, council flats and rural cottages to purpose-built ecohouses.

Some of the solutions included:
- Solar photovoltaic arrays
- Wind turbines
- Ground source heat pumps
- Wood burning stoves
- Insulation
- Draughtproofing
- Wall insulation
- Eco-friendly washing machines
- Grey water
- Composting

We are hoping to make the Open Eco Houses an annual and financially self-sustaining event.
