If you have had solar panels installed on your home, or perhaps a wood burning stove or a heat pump, in fact anything that makes your home energy bills cheaper, then environment group en-form wants to hear from you now.
Working with local Transition Town groups and Colchester Borough Council, en-form will be holding a Green Open Homes Weekend based in Colchester and a twenty mile radius in May.
Andrew Wilkinson of en-form said ‘Green Open Days are like the familiar Heritage and Garden Open Days. Householders who have implemented green measures and lifestyles to their homes and would like to spread the word are invited to open their doors to the public to share their experiences and explain the numerous benefits and implications.’
At the moment 12 homes have registered their interest in opening and en-form are looking for at least 20. If you are interested in participating or know someone who is, and your home is within 20 miles of Colchester please contact en-form on 01206 367776, firstname.lastname@example.org or website colchester.greenopenhomes.net
The project has been funded by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) through the Green Open Homes Fund run by the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE)
