Designing a Solar Passive and Sustainable Home

Designing a Solar Passive and Sustainable Home

June 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Many Perth homeowners currently live in homes that work against our climate rather than with it. These homes are too hot or too cold, waste energy and are expensive to run.

Being well-informed about solar passive design principles early in the planning and building process is key to achieving an energy-efficient home that suits your lifestyle. The result will be a more comfortable home with lower energy bills and emissions, including a benefit in resale value. This MasterClass is a must if you place a level of importance on this topic and how to navigate your way towards a comfortable home for you and the environment and importantly understanding the costs towards performance.

Join us for an exclusive MasterClass focused on “Designing a Solar Passive and Sustainable Home” featuring  guest speaker and Performance Energy Assessor Debbie Bute from Leading Energy.
