SAVE ENERGY

Climate change and global warming is happening now and you can do something about it.

The You have the power. Save Energy campaign is encouraging all Victorians to save energy at home to cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the impact of climate change.

You may have seen the balloons featured in the campaign. Each represents 50 grams of greenhouse gas. Every Victorian household produces over 12 tonnes (240,000 balloons) of greenhouse gas emissions each year.

Lots of practical advice about ways you can cut energy use while keeping your home comfortable all year round. By saving energy,save money, as well as help protect our environment from the impacts of climate change.

Energy saving tips of the week

Cool your home naturally and save 570 balloons a year! If you must use an air conditioner, keep the thermostat at 26 degrees celsius during warmer weather and save 20 balloons a day (1 balloon = 50 grams of greenhouse gas)!

How can I cool my home naturally?

Shade your windows with external blinds or awnings. With less heat and air conditioning, save money and greenhouse gas output

Pull down the internal blinds and close windows and doors to turn a hot house into a cool haven

Use a fan to cool down a particular area of your house and save on air conditioner use. Using a fan instead of air-con saves 5,700 balloons and $45 each year

How can I use my air conditioner more effectively?

If you do use your air conditioner, keep the thermostat at 26 degrees celsius during warmer weather and turn it off once the room is cool. Increasing the thermostat by just 1 degree celsius from your usual temperature can reduce your running costs by up to 15%
It’s so easy for your household to help reduce its impact on climate change.
