Free Energy Consultations


As we spend more time at home, we’re using much more electricity than usual. In fact, research has shown that household energy usage has already increased by 34% (versus this time last year) and as we hit the colder months, this will rise even further.

So how do we keep energy costs down during this unprecedented time?

To help, our energy advice partner Australian Energy Foundation is running free 20-minute energy consultations via phone.

  • Get tips on how to shop around for the best energy tariff
  • Find out how to heat your home most cost-effectively this winter, without sacrificing on comfort
  • Learn easy ways you can use less energy when working, studying and cooking
  • Thinking of powering your home with solar? They can recommend if you should invest in solar during this time.
