The owners of the Chocolate Lily Sustainable Stays B&B in Sedgwick wanted to incorporate as many energy efficiency practices as possible into their property. They significantly reduced their heating, cooling and energy costs by: installing low energy CFLs; installing R3.5 insulation; fitting double glazing windows; using a heat pump to provide hot water; installing a 3.32kW solar PV system; using solar to heat the outdoor pool; and using 100% Green Power for top-ups.
