WA’s New Home Laws Should Consider Environmentally Friendly Rainwater Tanks

AS some, if not all, eastern states have now for several years implemented laws stating all new home builds must include rainwater tanks, with WA’s water problems and with all the new developments why have we not implemented such laws here?

Even take it one step further and make them all have solar panels as well?

Not only would it boost local companies in supplying these products but may also drive the prices down, which in turn make them more affordable for existing properties, making us all that little bit more environmentally friendly.

It is food for thought.

Why does WA always have to be so far behind the eastern states in so many ways?
