Sustainable House Day

For more than 19 years, Sustainable House Day has provided a great opportunity for hundreds of thousands of people to visit some of Australia’s leading green homes. In 2018, over 30, 000 people visited the 226 sustainable houses on show. The gold coin donations paid by entrants raised over $13, 000 for charity.

Not only are the sustainable houses on display environmentally friendly, but sustainable homes are often more affordable to run. This year, Sustainable House Day is happened on the 15th of September. It was a great opportunity to see some of Australia’s leading sustainable thinking and design.

Of course, a big part of sustainability is efficiency, and nowhere is this more important than in the energy that powers your home. Natural gas is part of a more sustainable future because it’s the cleanest traditional energy source. More than that, it supports the uptake or renewable energy. When not enough power comes from renewable energy, like when the sun isn’t shining or there’s no wind to turn turbines, natural gas is flexible and can quickly fill the power gaps. That means that sustainable houses don’t need to be left without power.
