Sustainability Policies:

Guests are instructed on our sustainability procedures upon check-in. We are pleased to further discuss our sustainability practices with our guests.

Solar Panels: On average we generate 99% of our electricity from solar panels. We installed a 20 panel (3,600 watts) photovoltaic (PV) solar panel array on our tractor barn and a 24 panel (4,680 watts) PV panel array on our main roof. We also have a three panel thermal hot water system that pre-heats our domestic hot water. Our monthly PV production charts are available at http://www.shakerwoodsfarm.com/solar.htm

We have motion-detector controlled lighting in all common areas for safety purposes. Many other lights are on timers to save energy. Where possible CFLs, LEDs or low-wattage lighting devices are used.

We ask guests to turn off lights when their room is not occupied and to setback the HVAC controls during off-premise hours. Our B&B is heated with high efficiency gas heaters and cooled with Energy Star rated A/C units. All guest rooms are also equipped with ceiling and window fans. We monitor lights and setback HVAC controls when common areas are not occupied.

Our domestic hot water is modulated to 120 degrees to prevent scalding.

Other conservation practices include, but are not limited to:

conserving water with low-flow water devices,
we normally change individual bed linens after the third night's stay and towels after two days,
recycling of paper, plastic and glass,
organic composting, gardening, native plant landscaping and early am watering practices,
using more environmentally-friendly cleaning products,
installing energy efficient appliances, and
office practices, such as: double-sided printing, sending reservation confirmations electronically and refurbishing furniture.

We participate in the NH Sustainable Energy Association's annual Green Buildings Open House.

We are seeking certification with the NH Sustainable Lodging & Restaurant Program and encourage other innkeepers to do likewise.
