With research from RACV showing that almost two thirds of Australians are struggling to pay their energy bills, finding ways to cut consumption is top of mind for many.
RACV’s Torquay Resort will host a free family day on Sunday 16 September to help Victorians find ways to do just that by living more sustainably.
Held on Sustainable House Day, it will have information sessions with home and energy experts including architect and RACV Tiny Home designer Peter Maddison and garden design guru Jamie Durie, along with live music, seedling planting for children, and a chance to look around RACV’s Tiny Home.
Bess Nolan-Cook, manager divisional programs RACV Home, says the Tiny Home’s design and features can help us get the most out of our homes, whether new or old.
“Everything inside and out of the Tiny Home highlights the benefits of good design and material choices,” Bess says. “It’s backed by smarter technology which allows householders to stay on top of their energy consumption as they live more efficiently.
“We want people visiting the RACV Tiny Home to be inspired by great ideas that they can apply to their own homes that will make a real difference to their cost of living.”
Sustainable House Day is run Australia-wide by the not-for-profit Alternative Technology Association (ATA), and allows people to tour innovative homes in the spirit of inspiring, educating and sharing new sustainable technologies and ideas.
Anyone can attend this free event, but you must register.
