Hill Plains cottage


The entire property has no grid-connected services. With 120-millimetre wide stud walls and 300-millimetre deep roof and pathways for cross ventilation, the building has achieved a near eight-star energy rating. Currently, generation of power exceeds all energy expenditure at 4.6 kilowatts per hour. The solar pool heating is only triggered when the roof temperature reaches 50 degrees.
