Testimonial from the Low-Bills Living Course
Laura Ryan says:
"I recently attended Michael's 4 day course. I'm about to start renovating a house in Newtown. This will be my second renovation and I wanted to make sure I don’t repeat the mistakes from the last renovation. Michael’s course provides invaluable project management guidance with everything from guidance on negotiating a building contract, selecting the right materials to “bill proof” your house, how to select the appropriate battery and solar panel combination and how to engage builders/architects/suppliers to make sure you get the right outcome. The added bonus is that I also learned the most cost effective ways to simultaneously reduce my carbon footprint and reduce my bills!"

I'm Michael Mobbs, the 'off-grid guy'
- see my house in this 2 minute video - Sydney's Sustainable House.
I'll help you go off-grid, or partly off-grid, too.
We can all live a sustainable life.
Cut your bills, reduce your pollution and get healthy with local food you grow or buy.
Since 1996, I have had energy and water bills of less than $300 per year - the house has been disconnected from mains water and sewer since 1996. In March 2015, I disconnected my house from the poles and wires of the main electricity grid, and since then solar panels and batteries have powered the house.
See note below about under-performing batteries and installers.*
You can live partly or fully off-grid, too.
You don't have to go all off-grid - choose what works for you, in your own time, in your own place.
* Data is key for solar: I get real time data from my solar projects to know whether they're producing the promised amount of power; so should we all. The data for the two year trial of the Alpha-ess batteries installed by Australia Wide Solar shows they're under-performing and delivering just 46% of the promised amount of power. I do not recommend these batteries or installers. I'm replacing the batteries with other products and different installers.
