to Lewes Eco Open Houses. The open house event takes place annually and
involves houses where the owners have taken steps to seriously reduce
carbon emissions and also reduce their energy bills. In many cases there

demonstrate at first hand what can be achieved and pass on the benefit
of their experience. Take a look at the houses:
