Climate Friendly Homes Tour Offering Unique Learning Opportunities


Climate Friendly Homes Tour will showcase energy efficient, climate friendly homes to members of the public

Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey towards a greener future? The City is excited to announce the Climate Friendly Homes Tour, a unique opportunity for individuals and families to explore climate friendly and energy efficient homes. This event aims to inspire and empower people to make environmentally conscious choices in their own lives.

In collaboration with the Community Energy Association, the City of Kimberley presents the Climate Friendly Homes Tour that will take place on October 14 from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Participants will have the chance to visit a selection of homes that showcase climate friendly features, smart technologies, and energy efficient design elements. The tour will provide invaluable insights into the possibilities of climate friendly living.

The tour will include homes ranging from renovated properties to newly constructed residences, all designed to minimize the environmental impact related to running the home. Attendees will learn about the integration of heat pumps, high efficiency building envelopes and renewable energy sources, such as solar panels.

City of Kimberley Building Official, Andy Christie said: “Climate change is stressing infrastructure and testing the integrity of our buildings. Climate ready homes reverse the trend for more reliance on energy inputs for comfort. These homes use non-carbon sourced energy, improved envelope design and superior materials in their construction. The Climate Ready Homes Tour will showcase local examples of heat pumps, solar panels and improved design to allow residents to experience these technologies and materials first hand.”

The Climate Friendly Homes Tour is an opportunity to see climate friendly buildings and a chance to engage with experts and homeowners who have successfully implemented sustainable living practices.

By participating in the Climate Friendly Homes Tour, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the positive impact changes to the home can have on the environment, as well as their own well-being. Join us on the journey towards a better future.
