Dudley Bailey is going to attach wind turbines and other eco-friendly features to his new property in Locking Road, Weston.
The owner of tea rooms The Cliffs at the end of Kewstoke Toll Road, says he also wants to put solar panels across the building and special underground pipes which recover heat from the ground and turn them into energy.
The designs for the building, which lies between The Red Admiral pub and a disused church, have been approved by North Somerset Council.
