New Forest Green Open Doors 4th & 5th October 2014

New Forest residents will be able to take a tour of eco-friendly homes in the area to find out about energy saving measures.
The “Green Open Doors” Event, which is being run by the New Forest National Park Authority and the New Forest Transition, aims to reduce carbon emissions in the area. People can visit eleven customised properties throughout the weekend of October 4th and 5th.
There will be a chance to find out about a range of energy saving measures, including solar panels, efficient lighting, wood burning stoves and rainwater harvesting.
Entry to all the houses is free and no booking is required, with home-owners on hand to answer any questions on the pros and cons of their property’s environmentally friendly features.
Milford participants, Chris and Sue at Wynford, Barnes Lane said: “Wynford was designed so that all our heating and hot water needs are met by the energy the house generates. We also collect the rainwater from our roofs which means we use less than 50 litres / person / day from the mains supply.”
If you are interested in finding out more, visit Wynford between 10am and 4 pm on Saturday 4th October or Sunday 5th October.
