Thursday 8- Sunday 11 September 2011

Free entry + a chance to win an electricity monitor!

This year it is our pleasure to introduce the fourth Eco Open Houses event. Once again you can visit eco houses in Brighton & Hove. Some of the houses are old, some are new, some have won awards, and others just seem plain ordinary. What they have in common is that the people living in them save lots of money by having low energy and water bills, whilst enjoying warm happy homes in winter!

Eco Open Houses aims to show that it doesnt necessarily take expensive renovation to reduce your energy and water bills - some simple behaviour changes and small changes to your home can make a big difference. By listening to the experiences of friends and neighbours and seeing what practical steps they have taken, we can all learn how to achieve reductions in energy and water use and carbon emissions in our own homes.

Whether you are a home owner or tenant wanting to find out what you can do in your home to save money and feel healthier and warmer, a builder looking for better ways to build for your clients or just simply curious, come and be inspired by visiting an eco-home near you!
