Visit inspiring eco homes, where householders show and explain how they save energy and cut bills. Find out what would work for you (or not!) eg: comfortable insulation, hi-tech & renewable energy, DIY, low-cost improvements, taking control of your heating. 18 varied Cambridge-area homes, new-build and retro-fit, will be open on 19th and 27th September. 5 Follow-up events will provide practical advice on particular home improvements like DIY measures, insulation and low-carbon energy.
