Councillor Paul Crossley (Lib-Dem, Southdown), Leader of Council, said, "These events represent an excellent opportunity for people to find out how to save energy bills in their homes and cut their carbon footprint. Supporting a community which adapts to changes in our climate and are not dependent on high carbon energy is one of the Council's priorities. We are still looking for volunteers to steward at the Open Homes Weekend and to promote our other events, so if anyone is interested in helping, please do get in contact as we can provide training and support."
One of the home openers, John Toplis, added, reveals, "We have taken a DIY approach to making our home more efficient, and we were the first home in the area to get listed building consent for Solar PV panels on our roof. We are proud to open our home so that others can see how we have saved energy and reduced our carbon footprint".
