Eco-friendly Chesterfield homes to open to the public

26 February 2013 No Comment

Three eco-friendly Chesterfield families are to open their homes to the public in a bid to teach local residents more about sustainable housing.

The households will be open from 11.00 to 15.00 this Sunday (March 3rd) as part of the first ever Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Ecohomes Open Week – the latest in the long of sustainability-themed events from around the world.

Opportunity for residents to visit eco homes in their own community

According to everybodys-talking.org, the event’s organisers Transition Chesterfield are still on the lookout for more homeowners to show off their green buildings to the public. They will also enter all visitors into a prize draw for the opportunity to win a Green Deal assessment of their home for free.

New homes to inspire people to make their own homes more environmentally-friendly

In an interview with greenbuildingpress.co.uk, Transition Chesterfield secretary Colin Harrison shared hopes that visitors to the homes would be inspired to make similar alterations to their home. He said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for people living in Chesterfield to visit the real eco homes in their own community and get inspired to make their own homes more environmentally-friendly and cheaper to hear.”

“It will be a bit like an Open Gardens Day, but households will be showing off their insulations and solar panels instead of their sunflowers and chrysanthemums.”

Transition Chesterfield organised the event after a request from the local Community Climate Action Network (CCAN).
