Company Pays You To Live Rent Free In Smart House 8

An anonymous reader writes "Save the planet by blogging. EnergyAustralia and Sydney Water have opened a tender for a family to live rent-free for a year in an energy-efficient house to be built in a 'smart village' in Sydney's west. Smart Village houses are equipped with in-house displays driven by home-area networks connected to the utility's smart grid that has sensors at sub-stations and elsewhere on the network to manage power use. 'The home will provide a real-life laboratory, integrated with the intelligent electricity grid, for testing products that will help minimize energy and water use and greenhouse gas emissions,' EnergyAustralia said."
