Pewsey Vale residents using renewable energy will be opening their homes to the public this weekend.

Homeowners will discuss the benefits and challenges they experienced when they switched to renewable technology.

Iona Hassan, chairman of Pewsey Environmental Action Team, who organised the event, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people considering renewables to find out the benefits and pitfalls of each technology from people who have already installed clean energy in their homes.”

Holly Lodge Care Home, in Old Hospital Road, will also be open today to show people the benefits of solar panels which save the home around £15,000 on electricity bills each year.

There will be a public meeting, Pewsey Energy Futures, in the Scout Hut at 7pm today.
