Sustainable Housing project in Fremantle
All the buildings will be fitted with solar panels which charge a shared battery used by all the residents, reducing or even eliminating reliance on the electricity grid. Electric vehicle chargers will also be provided. You can see a video explaining the system at the Smart Energy Council website.
Passive solar design features will be incorporated into the residences and landscaping will encourage local native flora and fauna. Landscaping will also manage stormwater run-off which will be captured in tanks and plumbed into the homes to be used in washing machines and toilets.
