Free Guide to Saving Energy and Money

Posted in Models, Research by sashashtargot on September 17th, 2012

From curtains to LCD monitors, taking showers to making toast, the Alternative Technology Association’s new guide examines all the ways to save money and improve energy efficiency around the home.

The Guide to reducing your energy use and saving money is available now as a PDF and is completely free.

This booklet is designed to help low-income households reduce their home’s energy use without the need for big spending on appliances or home renovations. Many actions can be done at zero or low cost, or through small changes in behaviour.

To make it easier, we have tips for each room of the house. These range from the simplest tweaks, to improvements that may require permission from your landlord if you are in a rental property.

The guide was developed by the Alternative Technology Association and the Victorian Council of Social Service, with support from the Melbourne Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
