The SuperHomes project harnesses the enthusiasm of energy saving pioneers to bring examples of successful sustainable refurbishment to the widest possible audience. The SuperHomes campaign has opened the doors to around 150 dwellings which have been made energy efficient. To qualify as a SuperHome, a 60% reduction in carbon emissions must be achieved. Several superhomes are available for viewing in the Chiltern area - search here. If you have installed loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, double glazing, solar panels and an efficient boiler you may be elligible for 'Superhome' status - see http://www.superhomes.org.uk/ for details.
