Hotondo Homes goes eco friendly with new Port Macquarie display

Care Solar Solutions is proud to feature a complete solar energy solution on Hotondo Homes’ new eco-friendly Port Macquarie display home.

Located on Sovereign Drive, in the new Sovereign Hills Display Village, the home boasts an LG Chem 6.5kW RESU (residential energy storage unit) and a 3.0kW solar PV system.

Hotondo can monitor their solar power generation and energy consumption online via the innovative Reposit monitoring system.

The complete solution is aimed at slashing the home’s dependency on the grid, and the home’s power bills.

Hotondo Homes’ Port Macquarie franchisee Fiona Petterson said they chose CSS to install their energy solution firstly because they’re a local company.

“And also because they were interested in working with us on future eco-friendly packages,” she explained.

As for why they went down the environmentally-friendly pathway with their first Port Macquarie display home…

“I’ve always been conscious of it and we wanted a unique point of difference in the new display village. We’ve installed polished concrete floors and the Odyssey smart air exchange system, and upgraded our insulation.”

Care Solar Solutions’ Director Phillip Butterworth was thrilled to install the latest solar storage technology on the home, which will welcome hundreds of potential new house hunters and renovators through its doors over the coming months and years.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase how a new home can improve its energy efficiency from the very beginning,” Mr Butterworth said.

“Visitors to the display home will be able to see the home generating and consuming energy in real time via an indoor monitor. We certainly hope this gets people thinking about how they too can harness the sun’s energy to power their home, both day and night.”

Any excess solar energy, not consumed by the home during the day will fill the battery storage unit, for use when the sun sets or cloud cover moves in.

Care Solar Solutions can supply and install a complete energy solution or retrofit the home’s existing solar PV system with battery storage.
