The best way to understand the benefits of home renewables is to come and see for yourself. The Green Homes Network is made up of more than 1,000 properties all over Scotland, with homeowners who have been through the process and are keen to share their experiences.
The network brings together sustainable eco-builds, historic stone cottages, listed buildings and everything in between. It covers a wide variety of high tech and low cost systems including energy efficiency improvements like insulation and draught proofing, heat generating technology like heat pumps and biomass, electricity generating technology like solar panels and wind turbines, and new and innovative technologies.
You can browse case studies or even visit a home in your area, where the owner can talk you through all the advantages, the actual costs, and their installation journey.
Green Homes Network members introduce the energy saving improvements which helped transform their homes. These virtual visits are full of useful ideas for making your own house more eco-friendly.
