Greater Manchester Open Eco-Homes weekends

We are looking for households from Greater Manchester and beyond, who have undertaken energy efficient retrofit work and would be willing to show people around their homes and explain the measures.

Our recent survey work showed a large number of supporters have already carried out some energy efficiency or renewable generation improvements.

Now, Carbon Coop and Action for Sustainable Living are running Open Eco-Homes events on the weekends of 17th/18th and 24th/25th May 2014, featuring open houses and Red Bus Tours.

Each householder will have a trained volunteer to assist them and visitors will book via a moderated booking system.

To showcase your home email us on info@carbon.coop or call 0161 408 6492.

Support for the event comes from the Open Green Homes network and DECC.

* To qualify as an ‘eco-home, you would have installed two or more energy efficiency or renewable technologies such as: external wall insulation, internal wall insulation, Solar PV, Solar hot water, Ground/air source heat pump, roof or floor insulation, Triple glazing, new doors, Wood burning stove, biomass boiler, significant Cavity insulation, Low water shower/WC systems, new heating system, air tightness works, etc etc.
