This year’s Port Elizabeth HOMEMAKERS Expo strives to make going green and off-the-grid a reality with it’s Sustainable Living zone.
The show highlight area will feature inspiring exhibitors, informative demonstrations and a chance to network with experts in the field of sustainability. The area will guide visitors through easy-to-implement strategies and solutions to make your eco-conscious goals attainable and where food, water and energy is something you make in your own backyard!
This feature allows you to explore the world of electric cars, power batteries, waterwise gardening, aquaponics, giant vegetables and water made from pure sunlight! Our focus areas will concentrate on Food, Water and Energy. Showcased within the feature are:
Rubicon SA’s One SOURCE Hydropanels turn sunlight and air into drinking water! See this truly amazing innovation at the show where we will be dishing out a couple bottles of PURE DRINKABLE SUNLIGHT! These hydropanels combines sunlight and air to make, mineralize, and deliver an unlimited supply of drinking water straight to your tap. Every morning when the sun comes up, you can have peace of mind knowing that your water supply is refreshed each day.
Bloomingdales Lifestyle Village & Nursery will be presenting useful ways to introduce a vertical garden into your home and tips on how you can create a more water wise garden.
Get more familiar with the fully-integrated AC battery system TESLA POWERWALL. This system is perfect for residential or light commercial use and provides energy storage for solar self-consumption, time-based control, and backup. The Powerwall’s electrical interface provides a simple connection to any home or building. It’s revolutionary compact design achieves market-leading energy density and is easy to install, enabling owners to quickly realise the benefits of reliable, clean power.
The greatly anticipated 100% electric Nissan LEAF will be on show too. This revolutionary car takes but also give back to the grid – the Nissan Leaf allows bi-directional energy transfer so when the battery is fully charged and there is additional power required for the home or the grid, the energy from the vehicle can be used to support the home or the grid. See this groundbreaking car on our floor, presented by Rubicon SA.
