Harry Redknapp and wife Sandra build £2 million eco-friendly solar-powered mansion
The forward-thinking ex-Spurs gaffer is building an environmentally-friendly gaff full of state-of-the-art energy-saving gizmos.
Harry, 73 – who grew up on a tough estate in London’s East End – and wife Sandra, 74, can’t wait to move into their new five-bedroom mansion, in his adopted hometown of Poole, Dorset.
Planning documents seen by the Sunday Mirror reveal the mansion boasts a raft of measures designed at cutting emissions, including high-tech solar panels – some in the windows – a water-saving system plus “energy efficient lighting and appliances”.
I’m A Celeb winner Harry, who this year starred in Harry Redknapp’s Sandbanks Summer has spent more than £2million on the pad.
Last night Greenpeace hailed Harry’s green goals.
The charity’s climate chief Rosie Rogers said: “Swapping ordinary windows for solar-powered ones is definitely the best substitution Harry Redknapp has ever made.
“Football has a pretty big carbon footprint, so it’s great to see icons of the game, such as Harry, doing their bit to tackle the climate emergency and setting a good example for the sport and its fans to follow.”
Harry – who as well as Tottenham managed West Ham, QPR, Bournemouth and Birmingham – is not the first footie star to go green.
