Chatsworth can be a 'beacon of renewable energy'

Chatsworth House can become a 'beacon of renewable energy', according to a Peak District National Park boss.

Jim DIxon believes the estate is a leading light in tackling climate change.

It is hugely encouraging that one of the national park's most important historic sites is at the forefront of tackling the modern challenge of climate change.

We hope that large organisations such as Chatsworth and ourselves can act as beacons of renewable energy in the national park, and inspire others to follow.

– Jim Dixon, Chief Executive of the Peak District National Park Authority
