It costs $3 a year to run a house in Victoria’s most sustainable community

It could cost as little as $3 per year to run Victoria’s first 10-star rated energy-efficient house, the team behind the ultra-sustainable home says.

Developer Brendan Condon, resident Michelle
 Isles and builder David Martin hope big builders
 will take on the practices used at The Cape. 
Developers and builders at The Cape in Cape Paterson –  the state’s most sustainable development – also believe Victoria’s large-scale developers and major-volume builders could adopt the same technologies and design standards to bring every new home within future striking distance of an energy bill of $0.

The average Victorian household spent about $2800 on energy bills in 2015, according to the state government, but that figure is expected to have significantly risen since — particularly since Hazelwood power station closed.
