Save money on energy efficient product buy

All southern councils have teamed up with Sustainable Living Tasmania’s ecohomeguide.com.au to create the Home Energy Bulk Buy for energy-efficient heat pumps, hot water services, insulation, LED lighting, solar panels and other products.

Buying in bulk brings down the cost per item. Products chosen for the buy will be based on quality, price and performance.

If you are interested in buying an energy efficient product in the coming months, you can register your interest at ecohomeguide.com.au
The Home Energy Bulk Buy will be available at the same time as the Tasmanian Government’s Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme that has three-year interest-free loans of up to $10,000 for individuals to install energy-efficient and renewable-energy equipment. For more information about the loans visit auroraenergy.com.au/teels

To register go to Ecohomeguide.com.au

There will be a workshop at Sustainable Living Tasmania on 4/10/17 to talk about the bulk buy and heat pumps (which will be open in October). You can RSVP here.

Sustainable House Day, 17 September 2017

Would you like to open your home on Sustainable House Day?  Here's a message from ATA:

Have you worked hard to make your home more sustainable? Would you like to share your knowledge and expertise with others?

The Alternative Technology Association (ATA) is looking for homes to open to the public on Sustainable House Day on Sunday, September 17. If you have a sustainable home that makes you proud, we'd like you to nominate it to open.

Be part of an award-winning community event, with 80 homes already registered for the day. By opening your home and sharing your passion and knowledge of sustainable living you can inspire and educate others. Share your journey of what worked, what didn’t and how it has changed your way of living.

Sustainable House Day is a national event that gives people a rare view of exceptional homes designed, built or renovated with sustainability in mind and allow them to speak to and learn from homeowners.
All homes participating in Sustainable House Day must have a minimum of four sustainable features. The sustainable feature can be anything that goes towards sustainable lifestyles, energy saving and healthy home practices.
