Spindrift represents a new paradigm in sustainable housing– an ‘Energy Freedom House’. We call it such because the residents have effectively eliminated electricity, gas, and petrol bills; due to the combination of a solar-powered all-electric efficient home, and a long-range EV.
This 3-bedroom, 153m2 home has been rated 8.3 Stars by NatHERS, and was recently the subject of a profile by Renew. This analysis found that this home saves its residents over $5200 annually in energy and petrol bills. It is also a comfortable and beautiful home to live in, with thermal mass provided by pressed local earth bricks, and a unique terazzo concrete slab. The all-electric Hyundai Kona has a range of 450km, and is powered by the solar energy produced by the house.
