Everhot and the Environment

A desire to conserve energy has been at the heart of our philosophy ever since it inspired the invention of the first Everhot.

The range cookers themselves remain our biggest focus – and we are continually searching for
ways to make them even more efficient and more compatible with renewable energy.

Everhot also believe in local manufacturing and offsetting any damage our manufacturing causes.
To this end all our cookers are assembled in Gloucestershire from parts that are almost exclusively supplied from the UK using energy that we largely generate ourselves. 

The 25kW water turbine, which brought that cooker to life in 1979, still powers our head office, though it is now supplemented by a heat pump and a 10kW solar array. Our factory is a new BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) ‘Excellent’ rated building, which has been further enhanced with the fitting of a 50kW solar array. 


In addition to generating our own power,  in 2012 we planted 10,000 native trees on a 12 acre site within a mile of our factory, this site is  already a haven for wildlife with grass snakes, slow worms, and the relatively rare woodcock all being sighted recently.  We have just completed planting in March 2020 a  further 12,500 native trees in a separate 14 acre site within Coaley – this site is a patchwork of new woodland, water and open grassland and combined with the feeders put out we have already attracted pheasant, partridge and mandarin duck.  Our overall aim is to plant 50,000 native trees in the immediate vicinity of our company and to this end we have recently purchased a 27 acre plot in Coaley that will be planted in in Winter 2020.
