RACV is a proud supporter of this year’s Sustainable House Day, a nationally recognised day to inspire Australians to think about how they can use energy more wisely at home, to help manage costs and live more sustainably.
To celebrate Sustainable House Day, RACV’s Inverloch Resort will host a free family event on Sunday 17 September 2017 from 10am to 4pm. The event will feature information sessions with energy and sustainability experts providing uncomplicated practical advice, as well as kids’ activities, live music and food.
Sustainable House Day gives people (Australia-wide) the opportunity to tour some of the country’s most progressive and innovative homes which are designed, built or renovated with sustainability at the forefront of plans.
RACV Environmental Sustainability Manager, Simon Mikedis encourages Victorians to explore simple home solutions to live more sustainably.
“As the price of energy increases, maximising resources within the home is critical to controlling costs. This is especially relevant for Victorians who spend the majority of their energy consumption on heating and cooling their homes.
RACV Inverloch Resort’s event will allow RACV members and other Victorians to explore the benefits of alternative energy sources and other ways to reduce their energy costs, and think differently about using energy,” said Mr Mikedis.
Sustainable House Day is run by the Alternative Technology Association (ATA), a not-for-profit organisation that promotes sustainable living.
“Sustainable House Day provides a unique opportunity for people to come and learn how to make their own homes more environmentally friendly, comfortable and cheaper to run,” said Donna Luckman, ATA’s Chief Executive.
Saving money on bills and being energy independent is a real concern for many households in today’s world, and this has been a key driver for many of the homeowners opening their homes this year.”
