Chilla Junction Marketing Suite Opens

On my bike ride on Sunday I couldn’t help but notice that some additional notices had sprung up in Halwill Junction recently:

As I continued past the entrance to the Chilla Junction development I noticed a car parked behind the big house under construction on the corner. I went to investigate, and discovered that the “garage” on the original plan was currently the newly opened “marketing suite”. Not only that, but also it was even open on a damp, grey Sunday afternoon in February!

I popped in for what turned out to be a long chat with Vicky, who gave me a brochure and a site plan/specification leaflet. You can see them for yourselves on the Chilla Junction section of the Devonshire Homes web site. I explained to Vicky that my profession involved renewable energy generation, electric vehicle charging and battery storage. I was pleased to discover that the houses on the development utilise air source heat pumps, and that the garages come complete with the “plumbing” for electric vehicle chargers. I was less pleased to be informed that the lights in the marketing suite are currently kept on by a diesel generator, which could be heard rumbling away in the background. By the sound of it somewhere near the area on the Chilla Junction site plan destined to become allotments!

I also had some more technical queries, and Vicky assured me that she would put me in touch with somebody who could answer them. They are mentioned in this article which I wrote a few years ago now, and can be (very!) briefly summarised as:

Are all the homes on 3 phase electricity? Which is unusual in this country, but common elsewhere in Europe.

To be continued…

I've been programming computers since the late 60s. In those days they didn't have computers in schools, so we had to build our own. What can I program next? Will I have to build it first?
