In 2015, we commissioned a series of profiles, short videos that looked at the different ways Carbon Co-op members have chosen to improve their homes. From a full scale, whole house retrofit to an iterative approach over many years. From completely DIY to a fully managed and Carbon Co-op procured model. Each video looks at a different approach and highlights a different technology. We hope you find them useful and encourage feedback to inform future profiles.
