Entry for Roundabout Magazine – May 2012 edition.

If you are thinking about trying to improve the insulation, or energy efficiency, or
the heating system, of your home, then there are several opportunities to learn
from other people’s experience in May. Cambridge Carbon Footprint are holding
an “Eco Renovation Question Time” at 7.30pm on 2nd May 2012 at St Paul’s Centre,
Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 1JP. A panel of experts will be available to answer
questions. Entrance is free, although donations will be welcomed.

There are Open Eco Homes Weekends taking place on 12/13th May, and 26/27th
May 2012. This is an opportunity to visit houses that have been upgraded to improve
their energy efficiency, and lower their running costs. See www.openecohomes.org
for more information, and booking details for these homes. Prior booking is
essential! Phone no. 01223 301842.

A Green Deal Information Centre will be held between 10am and 5pm on 26th/
27th May at the Gamlingay Eco Hub, and there are free guided tours at 10.30am, 12
noon, 2pm and 3.30pm. This building is heated by ground source heat pump, the
water is heated by solar thermal panels to heat the water, and it also has a large
solar pv panel system for generating electricity. The building is also highly insulated.
Other Green Deal Information Centres are open on 12th May at Rampton Drift,
Longstanton, and on 13th May at Coton Village Hall.

The sun did certainly shine during the last week of March! The solar pv system at
15 Main Road generated 70 kWh of electricity during that week – this was more than
the electricity generated during any week last summer or autumn. This system has
now generated 1652 kWh of electricity since installation on 27th May 2011 and the
end of March 2012.
