As it’s Energy Saving Week this week, I thought I’d write a short post about what we’re doing at The Richardson Partnership for Care to reduce our carbon footprint.
Our care home at 144 Boughton Green Road has been using solar power to heat the water for the last 10 years and we’re installing solar water heating in The Mews too. We’ve also made provision to switch to solar water heating in our other care homes by putting water tanks in place.
In addition, our care homes are well insulated to reduce heat loss and they recycle most of their waste. We are also considering installing rain water harvesting systems in some of our homes – there’s certainly a lot of rain water about at the moment!
