For those who want to combine owning investment properties in a Perth suburb with environmental responsibility, we have the perfect place for you–High Wycombe. Located on the edge of Kalamunda and falling under the aegis of the Kalamunda local government, High Wycombe benefits greatly from Kalamunda’s environmentally-responsible policies to help combat climate change by reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases.
If you are ready for the low-carbon lifestyle, High Wycombe is a great place to live and own investment properties in the Perth area. Here are some programs that help High Wycombe residents live a low-carbon lifestyle, courtesy of the Shire of Kalamunda.
Perth Solar City Program
Kalamunda and High Wycombe were part of the Perth Solar City program that closed on 30 September 2012. Smart meters were installed to help save power and many households received eco-consultations as part of the program. Though the Solar City program is finished, it amassed a great deal of useful information and helped foster awareness of the carbon footprint and how to reduce it while saving money.
Any member of the community who wants to assess their power usage can borrow a Power-Mate from the Kalamunda public library system. A Power-Mate is an extremely accurate energy efficiency meter that can tell you exactly how much power every appliance in your home uses and how much carbon is being emitted.
Achieving Carbon Emissions Reduction (ACER)
ACER is not a program in the traditional sense, but more of a mission statement for the Shire of Kalamunda’s collective efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
In 2001, Kalamunda joined the Cities for Climate Protection Program (CCP) of the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). The CCP monitors and reports levels of carbon emissions and searches for ways to reduce them.
By 2007, Kalamunda reached CCP’s “PLUS” phase, meaning that they had developed a baseline emissions inventory, implemented policies to reduce greenhouse gases to a specific target based on the baseline inventory and produced documented results.
Currently, Kalamunda is one of the most active councils in Australia for helping to reduce greenhouse gases. In other words, High Wycombe is a great place for the environmentally responsible to live and to amass investment properties near Perth. Call 1300 472 427 to learn more.
