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.
