Campsite goes green

Campsite goes green
An investment of £180,000 in renewable energy has enabled one Norfolk campsite to go green.

Kelling Heath's site operator Blue Sky has installed solar water heating to provide hot water for the shower block - something that is expected to save around half a tonne of CO2.

An efficient gas boiler has been fitted to "top up" the temperature in the winter, as well as a rainwater harvesting system to provide water with which to flush toilets and ground source heat pumps.

"This block will significantly reduce the environmental footprint of the holidaymakers staying here, making a holiday here a greener option," said Rufus Bellamy, environmental advisor to the British Holiday Home and Parks Association, who opened the new shower block.

Elsewhere in the UK, a series of environmentally-friendly houses are to be built in Dorset, with 50 per cent of the development's energy being provided by renewable energy.
