Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Eco Open Homes

Derbyshire residents are invited to visit eight eco homes and buildings, including two in the High Peak area, whose owners are throwing opening their doors to the public this May as part of the third Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Eco Open Homes event.  

Solid wall insulation, solar panels, draught proofing, wind turbines and even a toilet which composts waste, instead of flushing it, will all be on display. If you’ve ever wondered how well these things work in real homes (or if the loo smells or not!) and if they’re worth installing, come and have an honest chat with householders about what it’s like to live in their home and their experiences (both good and bad) of installing these measures. Visitors in previous years have left inspired to change their own homes.

Rising energy bills are affecting everyone and there’s a pressing environmental need to reduce our energy use and get energy from renewable sources. This event is an opportunity to see real solutions in real homes, done on a range of budgets, and talk to the people who live there. Last year, more than 300 people visited a home in. Why not come and get inspired this year?
