RACV’s Inverloch Resort will host a free family event on September 17 to help Victorians think differently about how they use energy at home, so they can save money and live more sustainably.

Held on Sustainable House Day, 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 runs Australia-wide, and allows people to tour innovative homes that are designed, built or renovated with sustainability at the forefront of plans.

RACV’s environmental sustainability manager, Simon Mikedis, says Victorians spend most of their energy consumption on heating and cooling their homes.

“As the price of energy increases, maximising resources within the home is critical to controlling costs.

“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 not-for-profit Alternative Technology Association (ATA), which 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.”

Anyone can attend the event, but you must register at racv.com.au/shd
