Cumbria Green Build Festival

12 - 27 Sep 2015

This year is CAfS 10th Cumbria Green Build Festival! We will visit a variety of homes and small businesses like farms and accommodation providers across Cumbria where householders will talk about and demonstrate their energy saving improvements and renewable energy installations. Technologies often include new-build Passivhaus, biomass boilers, Air Source and Ground Source Heat Pumps, hydroelectric plants, wind turbines, Solar Thermal and Solar PV, Rainwater Harvesting and more. Householders are also often keen to chat about their sustainable way of living, including chickens, composting, GYO, electric cars & bikes!
