9:00am Saturday 14th September 2013 in News
A COUPLE will be opening their energy-efficient home to the public this weekend.
Chris Southall and Rosie Dodds, from Burrs Road, Clacton, will be letting people into their Eco DIY home to show how they save money and reduce their carbon footprint.
They hope the day will help inspire others to be more green and save energy.
The bungalow includes solar panels for heating water and generating electricity, as well as a rain-water harvesting system. They also grow their own food.
Their home, at 193 Burrs Road, Clacton, will be open for viewing on September 14 and 15 between 10am and 5pm. Entry is free. To learn more about EcoDIY go to www.ecodiy.org.
