Sustainable Housing

Sustainable Housing looks at utilising natural resources and energy to minimalise or eliminate the reliance on electricity, water, gas, etc from Utilities Companies.

Sustainable housing will:

  • harvest rainwater

  • treat sewerage

  • generate its own power

  • use resources and materials that are renewable and/or recyclable
The easiest way to become more sustainable is by installing a Solar Charge Grid Connect Solar Power System which will allow you to:

  • create electricity from the sun

  • reduce your power bill, or export power back into the grid where you receive credits from the power companies

  • add value to your home

  • create green, clean electricity minimising your carbon emissions

  • educate others by leading by example
