Solar House open days

Periodically solar house days are held so that visitors can discuss the issues with people who have already gone down this path and learn about the savings. We hope this encourages the visitors to take the decision to progress to installation of solar systems and the adoption of other sustainable lifestyle options.

The owners and GADSA members will be there to answer your questions and talk through the process and circumstances that have led them on a path of improved sustainability.
If you are thinking about solar, batteries, electricity consumption efficiency, electric vehicles or wondering where to start, please visit these homes to discuss the pros and cons with those who have made this step already. You will reduce your energy consumption from the grid, its cost and emissions of green house gases.

Saturday 13th November 2021 from 8.00 to 2.00.

The homes available for viewing are:

  • Jamie and Regina’s 1940’s Queenslander being renovated and upgraded at 7 Crown Rd, Gympie, and
  • Chris’s 2000’s build with passive heating and sustainable living included in the design at Pie Creek near Gympie. If you would like to arrange a visit please call Chris on 0400 579 162.  Otherwise directions can be provided by Jamie and Regina.

Future dates have yet to be set.
