CONCERNS about the environment have inspired 78 per cent of people living in East Anglia to consider turning their homes into mini power stations, according to energy saving research.
The findings released last week by the Energy Saving Trust examined consumers' attitudes towards energy efficiency and found 78 per cent of people would like to generate their own heating and hot water using renewable energy.
Rob Gilmore, the renewable energy co-ordinator at the Energy Saving Trust Advice Centre in East Anglia, said: "As our homes are responsible for over a quarter of the UK's carbon dioxide emissions - the leading cause of climate change - it is extremely positive that people in East Anglia are keen to reduce their homes' impact on the
environment through energy efficiency.
