Green Open Homes

Calling “Green Home” Owners!

Have you insulated your home, put solar panels on your roof, installed a smart meter or rainwater harvesting, or even built your own eco home?

HadLOW CARBON Community is calling on owners of homes with innovative energy efficiency measures or renewable energy technologies to share their experiences in a “Green Open Homes” weekend. This event is part of the nationwide Green Open Homes initiative, supported by the Centre for Sustainable Energy and Bristol Green Doors. More info can be found on the Superhomes website as well.

Open homes are an excellent way to demonstrate the benefits of low-carbon features. Visitors can talk to the home-owners and gain a first-hand account of how the measures have reduced carbon emissions and saved money on energy and water bills.

The event is planned for one or two weekends in May this year and is being organised by HadLOW CARBON Community (HCC). They are looking for householders living within ten miles of Tonbridge who have made energy and environmental improvements and are willing to show their homes to other people who are thinking of doing something similar.

“We’re interested in people who have done anything from installing a super energy efficient boiler or carrying out simple draught proofing measures to retrofitting a whole home or building a new one. Participants could open their home for just part of a day or for all four days over both weekends, whatever suits them best.

We will provide guidance on what to do and with information to give out to visitors, as well as doing all the publicity and organisation.

If you might be interested in taking part contact Hildegard on 01732 852054 or email hadlowcarbon@gmail.com
