Now is the time to plan how you can reduce your fuel use and bills next winter. Come and see how homes in Winchester (Fulflood, Harestock, Park Road and St Cross) and Colden Common have cut down their energy use.

We have old and modern examples of detached, semi-detached and terraced housing built in the range 1845 to 2006. For a map of all the participating houses.

Particular highlights below.

  • Photovoltaic (pv) cells
  • Solar thermal water heating
  • Ground source heat pump
  • Air source heat pump
  • Grey water/rain harvesting systems
  • Various forms of wooden casement and sash double-glazing and secondary glazing
  • Wood burning stoves
  • Insulation and draught proofing - lots of different different ideas
  • Folding and electric bikes
  • Double cat flaps
  • and many other (See the Wider Matrix below for all items of interest)

In Colden Common we have Hampshire's only 'SuperHome' as awarded by the Sustainable Energy Academy that has achieved carbon cuts of 79%. You can also sample his low carbon beer he has been brewing!

Please download the Flyer and Wider Matrix below.

Unfortunately House L in Teg Down Meads has had to pull out and will no longer be open.
