Going Green with Oak Grove Plantation

2018-01-31 15:26:29
    Luxurious getaways and environmental friendliness are certainly not mutually exclusive, and no B&B exemplifies this better than Oak Grove Plantation in South Boston, Virginia. BedandBreakfast.com recently named Oak Grove as one of the 14 most eco-friendly B&Bs in the entire United States.   Oak Grove’s innkeeper Pickett Craddock has already previously made headlines for the plantation’s impressive solar panel display, which generates clean energy and illustrates the merging of a historic location and modern solar-generated energy. As Pickett says in the BedandBreakfast.com article, “Our guests will be able to sip lemonade on the front porch as my ancestors once did, then tour the 25x10-footlineup of solar panels in the back field.”   These solar panels aren’t the only green efforts that Oak Grove’s innkeepers are making, however. The south side of the property will soon see low-emissivity, energy-efficient storm windows, which reflect infrared heat back into the home, thus improving the windows’ insulation abilities. Also, Oak Grove’s guests who arrive in a hybrid vehicle will receive a free third night at the B&B.   Congratulations to Oak Grove Plantation on their current and continuing efforts in environmental friendliness!
