Environment Victoria: Cut your energy use and your bills! (for owners)

Tuesday 15 Sep
- Tuesday 15 Sep




About this event

Learn simple and practical ways to keep your house cosy, reduce energy bills and help cut climate pollution. We’re running separate events to cater specifically for home owners AND renters!

Energy efficiency is a win all round; lower energy bills, less climate pollution, and greater comfort during the extremes of summer and winter.

And the best part is the solutions are right at your fingertips. That’s why we are partnering with Tenants Victoria, Renew, and energy efficiency experts to deliver a series of webinars to help owners and renters use less energy and make their homes more efficient.

There are separate webinars for home-owners and renters to make sure the information is specific and relevant. Simply fill out the RSVP below and select the event and time that suits you!

All sessions are free and will be run online via Zoom. Scroll down to learn more about the speakers.
