Why did Mirvac create a House With No Bills?
In an effort to develop affordable, self-sustaining master planned communities in the future, Mirvac has commenced its House With No Bills study in Melbourne.
The House With No Bills aims to drive a more sustainable future for Australians. Our strategy focuses on not only reducing environmental impact but also social impact.
As part of this vision Mirvac has built a home at our $130 million Jack Road development in Cheltenham to demonstrate the first phase of the project, which is a study designed to deliver a home without energy bills. The home looks, feels and operates the same as a typical home but has been designed to reduce its reliance on electricity to the point where it will not generate any bills.
What are Mirvac studying?
Mirvac's House With No Bills study will help educate us and the general public on the performance of sustainable homes.
After months of looking for the right family for our study, we are pleased to announce that the Zimmerman family of Dingley Village were chosen to live rent free for 12 months, without the stress of soaring energy bills.
The methods used in the study include increased roof insulation, the installation of solar PV panels and batteries, use of LED lighting, energy efficient appliances, intelligent controls, smart metering and monitoring systems, which assist homeowners to keep track of where and how their energy is being used.
