The impact of energy price rises and the ever-increasing urgency to reduce carbon emissions

Many householders are looking at measures to make their homes more efficient. Green Open Homes B&NES is a partnership initiative focused on inspiring and educating individuals about energy efficiency and sustainable living in the Bath & North East Somerset area.

Following on from the success of previous events, and the strong community connections of our project partners, community champions have risen to the challenge of supporting in the organising of even more events across Bath & North East Somerset. We thank all the champions, volunteers and of course the home openers for welcoming visitors to their homes and gardens, and sharing their experiences.

Community Energy fortnight is a brilliant opportunity for us to tell you about the Green Open Homes events that communities in Bath and North East Somerset have been planning this year:
    • 14th September Pensford, Belluton and Norton Malreward for open homes in these delightful villages
    • 21st September Peasedown St John for a community hub event and open homes
    • 12/13th October Bath for a variety of homes including, 20th century, listed, heritage and hard to treat homes
    • Radstock town centre hub and energy saving demos – date to be announced
    • Farnborough and Timsbury for green open homes – date to be announced
    • Paulton for bio diverse gardens featuring snow drops and some special open homes – date to be announced
