Electric Cars at Sustainable House Day, Noosaville, Sept 13th

Item image

Each year, this event lets people open up their houses to show how they have built or modified their homes to make them more environmentally friendly.  It is a great way to share good ideas.  People take a wide range of approaches, such as grey water systems, LED lights, solar panels, compost systems, sustainable building materials, and many more.  Joe of Noosaville is opening his home, but has also decided to run an EV display alongside it.  Joe has a Tesla Model S, and we’re bringing along our Nissan Leaf to take part in the display.  There will be several Model S cars, as well as a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Holden Volt and a BMW i3.  The cars will be there for at least some of the day, with 12 noon being the planned time for all to be on site.  We plan to arrive for opening time at 10am, and will be recharging the car during the day, as the distance to Noosaville and back to Landsborough is a bit too far to do on a single charge.  No such problems for a Tesla Model S, which can go 300-500 km on a single charge – feeling a little green with envy, but also looking forward to checking out the other cars and the house.
