Green homes opened to the public
THE Bristol Green Doors project extends to Portishead and Pill this month.
Two householders in the area with energy saving, renewable electricity and heat installations will throw open their doors and invite people to see their energy-smart homes in action, as part of the project’s open homes weekend.
Visitors will have the chance to talk and listen to those who have made their homes energy efficient, cleaner for the environment and cheaper to heat.
On Sunday, Jasmine Cottage at 63 West Hill in Portishead will be open from noon to 6pm. This 200-year-old stone cottage with a 1980s extension has solar panels, solar hot water, a wood burning stove with back boiler, heat store, under floor heating, draught proofing, LED lighting, an apple press, compost and wormery.
In Pill, 30 Church Path Road will be open from noon to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. The Victorian end terrace has solar panels, solid wall internal insulation, quality windows and low-energy lighting.
