A beautiful masterplanned estate in the heart of the booming Logan growth corridor is the first to tap into Choice Homes' new partnership with SunYield Solar.

The picturesque The Highlands estate is inspired by nature and designed to bring the outdoors in.

Close to shopping, public transport and the central business districts of Beenleigh, Logan and Springwood, Highlands balances nature with convenience.

Logan's year-round sunshine makes it the perfect location to launch Choice Homes' partnership with SunYield, which provides every new house a solar energy package.

With easy access to the M1, the estate is ideally positioned with the Gold Coast just 35 minutes south and Brisbane CBD 30 minutes to the north.

Residents can enjoy a tranquil lifestyle while remaining close to all the urban facilities they could need.

Just minutes from Eden’s Landing State School, Canterbury College and more than 21 public and private schools and numerous childcare centres in the Logan region, The Highlands provides families with every convenience.

Landlords and tenants are set to both benefit financially with Sunyield, Stoddart Group's new solar technology.

A new batch of homes in Queensland will see the solar panels save as much as $275 a year on electricity.

The SunYield package includes a 6.5 KW solar power system, combined with a Stoddart Smart Board that replaces the standard meter box on a new home.  

SunYield is also battery ready, allowing landlords to add batteries as they become cheaper and increase the proportion of solar-generated power sold to the tenant.

Choices Homes director Troy Knight said the innovative technology is good for his customers, their tenants and the environment.

“We're always looking for ways to offer our customers a better investment, which made the decision to put SunYield on every home a simple one," he said.

“For our customers, it means an increased rental return and a home that's easier to rent.

"For our company, it means being one of the first to offer an innovative product that is good for our customers, their tenants and the environment.  

The Australian-first technology was designed locally and is being launched in Queensland with leading investment builders Choice Homes, Creation Homes, Brighton Homes and MetInvest, with each including SunYield as standard on their new homes. 

Stoddart Group's general manager for energy systems Adam Taylor says solar energy usage was once a difficult conversation with landlord and tenant before the new technology.

“It was too difficult to manage," he said.

“With SunYield, if the tenant chooses to use the solar panels, all solar and grid power is measured automatically via a smart switchboard and the tenant receives a single monthly power bill for all electricity consumed from both the solar and the grid.

“Renters have long missed out on the benefits of solar power simply because it was too hard or complicated for landlords to justify the cost.

“SunYield changes this by ensuring that solar on a new rental property is a good deal for the landlord, as well as the tenant.  

The process is completely automated, with the landlord then receiving a payment for all solar generated, whether it was used by the tenant or sent to the grid.

“With this technology, the landlord owns the solar system and can either sell the power to their tenant at a discount to the market rate or export it to the grid if the tenant chooses not to buy it.”
