Home Energy Efficiency Workshop and CENTs Dinner
29/08/2015 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pmÇ5
Shayn Harkness has an all electric home (no wood or gas heater) and his Aurora bills total just $600 for the year. As an Energy Assessor with Sustainable Living Tasmania Shayn has helped about a 1000 North West low income & Housing Tasmania tenants reduce their power bills on average by $200 to $300 per year with some inexpensive upgrades and providing better information on how to minimise energy use and maximise warmth & comfort.
Some tenants even said they had halved their power costs after his suggested simple upgrades and working with the information he had shared with them.
These measures are the best thing to do, before even considering the effective but more expensive upgrades of Solar PV panels and Solar Hotwater systems.
His practical advise is simple and can easily help you achieve savings with better knowledge that exposes some of the prevalent myths that exist in the community. e.g “Is the most effective way to use my heat pump to run it 24/7 and turn it to a low temperature over night?” ” I can’t afford double glazed windows so what can I do?”
Bring your last four quarterly Aurora power bills with you, so you get a clear starting place for savings.
Cost of $/Ç 5.00 can be paid in Dollars or CENTs (Community Currency)
