Dan and Jane manage to live a more or less zero carbon lifestyle in their fifty year old bungalow by combining a 6.4 kW photovoltaic system with solar thermal flat plate collectors, woodburning stoves and other low-tech solutions.  Dan has super insulated a single room which is heated by an air to air heat pump and drives an electric car.
