According to The Australian Financial Review, new home buyers at Mirvac's housing estates in Sydney and Brisbane will be the first to benefit from energy efficient housing after the listed developer struck a $90 million finance deal with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
Built-in solar and battery storage systems, high-grade insulation, LED lighting and energy efficient appliances will be rolled out to more than 300 family homes of three and four bedrooms.
The roll-out includes 5.1kW rooftop solar installations coupled with 10kWh battery systems, sufficient to meet up to 90 per cent of a typical household's energy consumption, according to the CEFC.
"The CEFC's finance will mean this clean energy technology is already included in the homes during construction, at no additional cost to the home buyer," said chief executive Ian Learmonth.
Mirvac has set itself a target to be net positive in energy and water by 2030. It is also aiming to include technology within its housing developments which helps people towards 'zero bills living'.
