The Green Savings Calculator is an innovative tool that allows families and home buyers to calculate the carbon, water and money savings available by using sustainable products and initiatives in a new home.
The calculator displays potential savings from an example new home in real terms, so you can easily compare the savings from different kinds of sustainable products. The Green Savings Calculator is easy to navigate and includes additional information on all of the products if required.
Savings calculations are customised for homes in Victoria, Australia, with savings specific to Queensland and New South Wales homes available in future updates.
The methods used to calculate the savings from the example home used have been peer reviewed by RMIT Centre for Design, however actual savings may differ to those displayed due to a number of factors including differing usage patterns and house size.
The Green Savings Calculator allows purchasers to explore different sustainable ideas and how they can be implemented when building a new home, renovating, or making upgrades to an existing home. The calculator has been designed to be used by purchasers in conjunction with builders to help ensure the construction of their sustainable home.
