Home Power Savings Program
Free help to save power
Blue Mountains pensioners and families on a low income are invited to save power and money on bills by taking up the offer of a free home power assessment and Power Savings Kit.
The NSW Government’s Home Power Savings Program is available to 220,000 eligible households across the state and provides a home assessment from a trained energy expert and a Power Savings Kit with equipment to kick-start savings.
The free Power Savings Kit, worth over $200, contains a stand-by saver power board, energy efficient light bulbs, a low-flow showerhead, shower timer, tap aerator, draught-proofing strips and door snakes. These items are fully installed by the energy expert as part of the free assessment.
After the assessment households are sent a tailored Action Plan showing the top four power users in their home and other ways to save power and money.
By using the free Kit and following your Action Plan you can save up to 20% off your power use.
Blue Mountains City Council is encouraging eligible residents to sign up to this free program to beat rising energy prices and cut carbon pollution.
The Program is available to nominated Centrelink and Veterans’ Affairs concession card holders and energy utility hardship customers.
All you need to do to take part is to call 1300 662 416 to book your home power assessment or visit savepower.nsw.gov.au/freehelp for more information.
