Mike and Heather have undertaken a pragmatic approach to energy saving and have invested in those proven measures which deliver good carbon savings and have maximum impact for the investment. This is not simply an economic exercise, but is driven by their Quaker principles to support sustainability, as well as Transition town principles.

Their large semi has filled cavity walls, triple glazing, solar pv and solar hot water, plus solar gain from the lean-to conservatory. It maintains cosy living conditions, whilst using around half the energy of an unaltered conventional home, with input from renewables helping to reduce net emissions further by an impressive 70% versus the norm.

This commitment goes beyond energy, with their considerable fruit and vegetable cultivation and sympathetic support for wildlife; and the generous sharing of their house with visitors, often via the Servas movement www.servasbritain.net
