First Superhome in Cornwall

The Sustainable Energy Academy (SEA)promotes education and action to reduce the carbon footprint of buildings and communities.

We are currently spearheading SuperHome - a network of exemplar, old dwellings which have undergone an energy-efficiency retrofit. We aim to create a network of homes that are local and publicly accessible, within 15 minutes, to nearly everyone in the country.

How can we help you?
The SuperHome project helps you make your home a more energy-efficient place to live. Whatever steps you want to take, we are here to help.

"We are delighted to welcome Paul Sousek of Cottage Farm, Jacobstow, Cornwall as our next 'Superhome', so far the only one in Cornwall and only the second Superhome in the South West.

Our criteria for inclusion is that the property must have had the works done as a retrofit (not be a new build) and must have achieved a minimum 60% carbon saving.

Cottage Farm, as is now, produces estimated 2.1 tonnes/yr, saving 70% Carbon compared to 7.0 tonnes CO2/yr prior to the changes. These include Wood stove, PV solar panels, Solar thermal and low energy lights as well as reduced consumption due to insulation, draft proofing and other measures.

Once your wind turbine, which you are planning to fit, is in place, typical average annual yield of 8,000 Kwh/yr can be expected. If this is taken into account, then the house should be net carbon neutral. Your site may be windier than average, in which case the yield may be higher."

Much of the work we have done so far had fed in to government policy and we are often asked to provide case studies, which some of our SuperHomers are happy to help with.
