Wyndham City has announced a new Energy Smart Homes program designed to help the community save money on household energy as part of the City’s Green Living Spaces initiative.
The program will run during April and May as part of Wyndham City’s Green Living Series. The annual series includes a wide range of sustainable living workshops and events, aimed at building skills and providing tips to live a little greener.
In 2021, the Green Living Series will look and feel a little different to other years with a mix of virtual and physical events throughout the year.
The Energy Smart Homes program includes information on:
- Understanding your energy bills and monitoring your energy use
- Latest government rebates and incentives to access funding to upgrade your home
- Using clean green energy options
- How to reduce your home energy without spending a cent
- LOW-MED cost upgrades to your home to save energy and money
- Solar and battery for your home
- How our little changes at home can make big action on climate change
Wyndham City’s Climate Futures & Environment Portfolio holder, Robert Szatkowski, said, “With this program, no matter what your budget is, you can make changes in your home (owners and renters) to reduce your energy, save money and act on climate change.
“During April and May, we will be running workshops and providing information on the latest government grants and incentives to support households in reducing their energy use and saving money.
“The program will also take you through topics such as understanding your energy bills and monitoring your energy use, low and medium cost home upgrades and solar and battery use for your home.
“To kick off this program we have a special guest, Craig Reucassel, whose Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge TV Series on ABC inspired this Energy Smart Homes program here in Wyndham.
“This is a great opportunity for people to hear from Craig first-hand on how the Wyndham community can join in and reduce our electricity use and help act on climate change.”
