Flicking the switch on energy tips and tricks

Monday, 15 October 2018 

Moonee Valley City Council has teamed up with a not-for-profit sustainability organisation to help educate the community on more sustainable ways to live.

Moonee Valley Mayor Cr John Sipek said the new service would include information sessions, speed date-style drop-in sessions, access to free 10-minute advice over the phone and discounted one-hour energy consultations.

“There’ll be a range of areas in which our community can get free advice or guidance, including on solar hot water, energy storage, heating and cooling, all-electric homes, insulation, energy bills and electric vehicles,” Cr Sipek said.

Portfolio holder for Environment Cr Nicole Marshall said the new service, which will be run in collaboration with not-for-profit Alternative Technology Association (ATA), reflected the changing needs of the community.

“For the past nine years we’ve offered a solar bulk buy program. However, the needs of our community have shifted and that’s why we’re taking this new approach in helping our community find the right products and services to meet their energy needs,” Cr Marshall said.

More information and details of speed date drop-in sessions will be available soon on our website.
