This is the home of one of CAfS trustees. The house has a 3kW solar PV array, installed around three years ago, which also uses the excess power produced to provide domestic hot water for a neighbouring self catering cottage. The grass roof over the car port was installed 15 years ago and planted with Solway fescue. The Aga has also recently been converted from oil to electric which the owner hopes will be more controllable and energy efficient. This event will be primarily held outside, so please wear appropriate clothing.  In the event of rain, we will be able to chat under the car port! This event immediately precedes the 'walk and talk' at Harlock Hill Wind Farm.
