SuperHomes logoSuperHomes

SuperHomes is a rapidly expanding network of 160 energy aware households. These pioneering homeowners are redefining green living. All have refurbished their old homes to the highest standards of energy efficiency. Eco friendly, sustainable, low energy and low carbon – the refurbished houses are least 60% less reliant on fossil fuels. This means that SuperHome owners are really leading the way. We can learn from them.

Many of these homes will be open to the public during the Heritage Open Days weekend from 12 to 15 September. See the SuperHomes website for details of how to arrange a visit.
