This is the second time that Juniper Walk has been open for Eco Open houses and if you want to get your head around solar PV, home batteries, electric cars, and how they can work with each other, this is the house to visit!
Warren’s philosophy is “make the future we want” and he and his wife Bairbre want to make their daughter’s future as secure as possible by being ahead of the game regarding self-sufficiency. Warren loves technology and he has a wealth of information about solar PV, home batteries and electric cars, all three of which feature in their home.
Warren came to our 2016 Eco Open Houses event and his enthusiasm was so infectious that two of our homeowners then went on to get solar panels, and another got their first electric car! And that’s what this event is about – inspiring others to become more sustainable, resilient and more self-governing, and events like this help to enable that to happen.
In 2017 he added a 14kW Tesla Powerwall 2 battery, one of the first in this country, to their house. The Powerwall stores energy produced by their solar PV and is used to power the house when there is no sun. This, coupled with a home that is energy efficient, means that Warren’s aim to be 100% energy self-sufficient for the summer months is achievable, and that includes running two electric cars!
Since the 2018 Eco Open Houses event Warren has joined the leadership team of Sussex EVs, a community for people who are interested in electric vehicles and renewable technologies. In 2019 the Club was the winner of the Best Electric Vehicle Club at the inaugural Electric Vehicles Festival. This year instead of opening his house up on the Sunday he will be hosting the first “EVs By The Sea” event in Lancing as part of the Worthing Eco Open Houses Event. Come along and meet some local EV owners and talk to them about owning and living with an electric vehicle in Sussex.
