The Link located in our first suburb Strathnairn will be holding tours, talks and demonstrations for the public on Sustainable House Day –  Sunday, 16  September.  This award-winning building showcases Ginninderry’s commitment to sustainability and includes a large solar cell on the roof generating the building’s power. The structure has a high recycled content with many items being 100 per cent reclaimed or recycled. Large water tanks also collect rainwater from the roof for our toilets and to help irrigate the drought-tolerant gardens.

TOPIC: Heat Pumps and Solar PV connectivity
Hot water heat pumps are powered by electricity, and generate up to four times the power used by harvesting natural energy from the air. The energy-efficient hot water heat pump is solar PV ready and can be powered by a solar PV-system. Compared to a conventional electric storage tank, it is up to 74% more efficient and can leave enough power to run household appliances like a washing machine or dish washer. Presented by John Martinovic

TOPIC: Solar Roofing
Reinvent the look of the roof using solar that not only looks good but also brings great benefits
