Home Energy Information
Our goal here is to inform you of how the three basic different forms of energy can be supplied to your home.
We will primarily be focusing on home electrical energy, as we're a home electricity reduction business. We will be explaining how electricity usage is measured and how you're charged for it. When of interest we will note comparisons in cost, between these different forms of energy.

Understanding The Electricity Bill! - Could It Be Simpler?
Well we would say, YES it could be a lot simpler! After looking at this rather complex looking electricity bill with Solar PV installed, you can see the bill is almost unfathomable! Clear to the electricity retailer maybe, but not to the average Aussie householder. Why is it so common in Australia for electricity bills to so confusing? Surely there needs to be good regulation.

Here Is An Energy Saving Tip To Save You BIG DOLLARS!
Make sure you understand the following Aussie Energy Label explanation, before shopping for your next electrical appliance. Not only will you be able to make the correct choice based on the initial price & running costs, but also use your newly gained knowledge to make sure the salesman is telling you the truth. And at least know what they are talking about when it comes to running costs and energy used of appliances. We would argue that any salesperson in the electricity industry, should know how to work out these costs, by using the Aussie energy label.
If you don't understand this energy label and purchase an electrical appliance based on stars alone, you run the risk of being left in the dark when it comes to running costs!
We visited three major high street electrical appliance stores & were told all kinds of energy costs! Not one sales person got the simple multiplication correct! Back to school!
