This is your opportunity to visit homes around Stroud, see renewable energy in action, discuss energy efficiency and get advice on eco-renovations…
On the Saturday 13th September we have an exhibition of the energy efficiency and renewable energy measures that people can take plus grant information, in what hopes to be the opening of the country's first carbon neutral village hall in Randwick. Plus over the weekend we have ten homes open to the public to show Solar Thermal, Wood Pellet boilers, rainwater harvesting, solid wall insulation and much more. There will also be tours of Tranquility House that has been dubbed by the Building Contracts Journal as ‘the most energy efficient house in the world’.
There are also two guided walks of the homes which are part of the Stroud's Walking Festival and a cycle route is also being developed by Bicycology Stroud. We have just launched an exciting new website with the details plus the District Council has supported us in helping fund 3,000 leaflets that gives info on grants and the open homes.
The leaflet is due out early next week. See our website which has times and details of the homes. It is in the process of being developed further to provide more information about the homes: www.stroudopenhomes.org.uk/
