In Thornbury and Alveston on 19th and 20th October, local people will be able to take the free Energy-Smart Homes Trail. Between 12 noon to 6pm each day, thirteen houses and one church hall will be open for visitors to find out how to save money by putting in energy saving measures. The householders will showcase what changes they have put in and explain the impact on both their comfort and their energy bills. From external wall insulation, heat exchanging kitchen extractors and air source heat pumps to draught-free letterboxes and hot box cooking, there is a wide variety of technology on display.
From 12 noon on both days, visitors can also go to the Hub at The Swan Pub, High St, Thornbury to get information about what’s on and pick up advice about energy saving. On Saturday 19th only, there will be an energy advice stall provided by Severn Wye Energy Advice Centre where visitors can get questions answered by experts. Also on that day, South Gloucestershire Council will be providing help with regards to grants available and the Green Deal.
Copies of the map leaflet are available at Thornbury Library and Town Hall. Some houses are not open for the full two days. Details of the event are on the website http://tinyurl.com/p7alh7y target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://tinyurl.com/qgj7q7j" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/qgj7q7j .
