How can I reduce my bill?
Audio visual equipment like televisions, DVD players and computers account for around 18% of the energy usage within Western Australian homes. Try these tips to reduce your energy use:
- Turn off the TV during dinner. It will allow you to spend quality time with your family, whilst lowering your energy costs at the same time.
- When the kids are at the park or playing outside remember to turn off all the lights, TVs and computers.
- Enjoy some fresh air - take a walk to your local park, go and have lunch at a café or read a book in Kings Park. When you venture outside remember to turn off TVs, games consoles and lights.
- Have you ever considered how energy-efficient your television is? LCD and LED screens tend to be more energy-efficient than plasma screens, and new sets models come with built-in eco settings to help you reduce your energy usage. Always consider the energy star rating when purchasing new appliances.
