First Perth home almost totally solar powered!


Environmental scientist Josh Byrne, together with Highbury Homes, built his 10-star energy rating home in Perth’s southern suburb of Hilton two years ago. Now he’s further developing the potential of his family home by storing the energy in batteries while still remaining connected to the power grid. This will make The Compass the first home in Perth to use the sun to meet almost all of its power needs. Read the story on the ABC’s website.
