News & Events Get Involved
Sustainable House Day started in 2001 as an initiative of the Australian Solar Energy Society (AuSES).
A record 270 homes will open their doors to the public this Sunday 12 September for Sustainable House Day as millions of Australians continue to embrace renewable energy, recycling and other practices designed to lessen our impact on the environment.
Homes will open for free, providing a fantastic opportunity for people seeking to make their own homes or rental properties greener.
Each year the average Australian household contributes 13 tonnes of greenhouse gas to the atmosphere—enough to fill more than 700 balloons every day while each household also draws an average of 73,000 buckets of water a year – enough for around 12 baths a day. Do your bit to reduce this by getting involved with Sustainable House Day.
