COME AND VISIT CARLEY’S NEW ECO-FACTORY!

With the help of the ERDF and Triodos Bank we have built a new purpose built eco-factory on the site of an old abandoned nineteenth century tin and ochre mine, in our home village of Chacewater, a few miles west of Truro.

We aim to make our factory a zero-carbon building over each year, and achieve a Breeam* excellent rating. Features include:

Photovoltaic (PV) cells to make 30KWp of electricity

Hot water from solar thermal panels and a 60KW wood burning bio-mass boiler, using our own coppice firewood and UK-made wood pellets.

Very high levels of UK-made natural wool and hemp fibre insulation in the timber frame construction, built using FSC certified timber by skilled local craftsmen.

Triple-glazed planitherm windows, for natural solar gain.

Very low energy lighting, balancing natural daylight

Battery storage to run the factory overnight, with "I-Boost" hot water

Heat recovery incorporates equipment to capture the heat from the cold store, and air compressor.

Rainwater harvesting system for use in the laundry and WCs.

Our new factory is now up and running and visitors will be most welcome now that we have settled in!
