Learn how to run a house powered by 100 per cent renewable energy when the Tesla Tiny House makes its way to the Shellharbour Civic Centre as part of its national tour.

Towed by the all-electric Tesla Model X vehicle, the Tiny House will be on display at the Shellharbour Civic Centre (in the ‘Backyard’ at the rear of the building) on Friday 24 August from 12 noon to 4.30pm.

The Tiny House is powered by a 2kW, 6-panel system and is backed up by Powerwall, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery stationary energy storage products manufactured by Tesla.

Shellharbour City Council’s Environment Team will also be on hand to talk about their environmental programs.

Visitors can also speak to members of the Illawarra Branch of the Alternative Technology Association about upcoming Sustainable House Day (Sunday 16 September) events.

Shellharbour Mayor Marianne Saliba said the timing of the visit was perfect, given that Council had just signed on to join the Climate Council’s Cities Power Partnership.

“The Cities Power Partnership program is Australia’s largest local government climate network, with more than 70 councils representing over 8 million Australians working together to find local climate solutions,” Cr Saliba said.
