Sustainable House Day is an initiative of the Australian Solar Energy Society (AuSES), a not-for-profit solar industry peak organisation that is a vocal advocate of residential and commercial solar power throughout Australia. It is a free event--there is no cost to participate.
The original intention of SHD, however, was to promote solar power as one important aspect of the whole panoply that need attention in any holistic and practical approach to sustainability:
The SHD experience for households, volunteers, and visitors alike is meant to be fun and informative, and contribute to local community awareness of sustainable living. SHD gives people the opportunity to have a peek inside households that have been designed, built, or fitted specifically with sustainability in mind--whether this means solar panels, low-impact building materials, grey and blackwater recycling, or home food production.
