Zero Emissions Homes

Be a hero at home

Australia is one of the highest per capita energy users in the world, but you don’t have to be. Just a few changes at home can save so much energy – and money too!

 

Join the renewable energy revolution

Instant zero emissions

Running your house on 100% renewable energy is as easy as switching to a renewable energy provider. It only takes a minute and, in most cases, your bill will be the same or lower.

Beyond zero

Install rooftop solar and start generating your own power. ​Solar has an ROI of at least 15% pa. That’s your entire investment back in as little as four years, and another 20 years of returns.

 

Make it count

Be smart and save

Ready to cut your power bills and emissions? With a few small behaviour changes you can make a big difference. We’ve researched what works.

Invest and save

Hot water

Around 25% of your energy bill goes on heating water. If you’re using coal-fired-electricity or gas, that’s a lot of fossil fuels. Replace your old system with a hot water heat pump and cut your hot water bill in half.

 

 

Cool pools

If you’ve got a swimming pool, you’ve got a pool pump and, chances are, it’s working too hard. A variable speed pump, or adding a pool pump controller to your single speed pump, will cut your pump power bill by up to 75% (and make less noise, work better and last longer.) Here’s how. 

Just right

Keeping your home not too hot and not too cold can be expensive. Installing a reverse-cycle split-system air conditioner is the most energy efficient solution, and if you run it on 100% renewable energy, it’s emissions free!
