A newly launched competition aims to find Melbourne’s Suburban Sustainability Super-Heroes, offering winners an eco-home package valued at over $85,000 including double-glazed windows and doors, insulation and a solar system.
The competition targets those households that are pursuing sustainability but do not yet have all the energy saving systems in place.
It is being organised by Ecostar Double Glazing, in conjunction with Enviroflex cavity wall insulation and AusSolar Co.
Craig Johnson, managing director of Ecostar Double Glazing, said the competition aimed to reward those ‘suburban sustainability super-heroes’ whose homes could benefit from such eco-improvements as double-glazing. “We’re after homeowners who are truly passionate about sustainability and reducing their eco-footprint, but don’t have all the energy-saving treatments in place yet.
“We want people whose homes are currently a work in progress and can benefit the most from these energy-saving improvements.”
He said the prize can bring substantial energy cost savings in the long-term. “Ecostar customers report annual energy savings ranging from 35% to 50% after installing double glazing.”
“A home loses between 35% to 50% of its created energy through the windows and doors, which explains the energy cost savings post installation.”
Johnson said judges will be looking for families who are master recyclers, separating refuse down to the last soggy kitchen towel, buy and invest sustainably, and are meticulous about disposing of waste.
Judges are looking for written, photographic and video evidence of the measures a family is taking to maximise the sustainability of your home. “We encourage families to be creative and original in their entries – we want to hear your family’s sustainability story.”
The prize includes: Ecostar double-glazed windows and doors installed, plus Enviroflex insulation, plus a 4KW to 4.2 KW solar electricity panel system by AusSolar Co – total prize is valued at over $85,000.
The competition is open to homeowners in Melbourne or Greater Melbourne – to be eligible, homes cannot have existing double glazing, cavity wall insulation, or solar hot water/heating.
