Making Our Homes More Comfortable While Saving Money and the Environment

Most homes and workplaces in Australia are not well designed for our harsh climate: blisteringly hot in summer and freezing cold in winter. With the rising price of electricity, it can cost a small fortune to heat and cool our homes and businesses.

Registration for this event will open three weeks prior to the event.

This workshop will detail a series of simple, cost effective steps we can all use to become more energy efficient in day-to-day life. We will be focusing on pragmatic, needs-based solutions aimed at reducing our individual energy consumption and reducing energy bills.

FREE LIGHT REFRESHMENTS will be available at each face-to-face event

Guest Speakers:

  • Alan Pears AM – Former RMIT lecturer and home energy efficiency consultant, Alan has worked in the sustainable energy and environment field since the late 1970’s with community groups, government departments and the private sector. He has written widely across the media spectrum and is a published academic. Alan was made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2009 for his contribution to environmental and energy policy.
  • Glen Newman – home energy efficiency expert from Enviroshop will be joining us to discuss a range of his most popular and efficient products and methods of saving money and the planet in our homes.

The event is planned to be run as a face to face event, and we are also now running the event as a live online webinar! We hope that this will make the event more accessible to people in other parts of our fine district.
