Molonglo Energy Efficient Homes?

By Solacecreations - 4 November 2012 34

I have heard that the Molonglo development has higher standards that guides home owners and builders to have a more energy efficient home through double glazing or using an insulated slab.

Is this correct?

What’s Your opinion?

The incentives are
$5000 for landscaping the front from building line to boundary
$2500 for solar hot water
$1000 for efficient space heating

landscaping should come secondary to a fully insulated home and insulation should include the windows and doors. I thought there were requirements rather than incentives for double glazing OR waffle slab?

I hear there’s a $1000 incentive towards the installation of astroturf, which seems to be paying dividends already.

But wait there’s more……..the first 300 people to call 1800 REAL ESTATE will win a free weekend in Gunghalin with Katy Gallagher and Andrew Barr.

Hmm, I’m not sure… but I’m pretty confident that if you contacted a supplier/installer, say somewhere in Phillip, they’d be able to give you the info.

If only I knew of one…

If this is true, its interesting that the ACT Government sought fit to subsidise the wealthy to make their homes cheaper to run in the long term….

The ACT Government has been subsidising the wealthy (existing homeowners) at the expense of the not wealthy (renters) for the past decade through the mechanism of exceedingly slow land releases.

Surely the single most important and most efficient element in energy efficiency is orientation. It would be simple and cost nothing to mandate northerly orientation for all buildings, but you never hear it discussed. I shudder to think what it must be like living in one of those many west-facing flats. Who in their right mind would buy one of those?

Given Solace Creations is a business that installs double glazing etc I would think the OP already knows the answer or else should know who to ask.

There is a quality supplier at 79 Dundas Court Phillip. Is the rumour right about double glazing at Wright? The only reason I ask is that I had a sniff that someone, somewhere was getting a little bit serious about insulation………

I believe this to be the case, hence my responses.
