Energy Savvy Families

What is it?

Energy Savvy Families helps householders overcome the traditionally low motivation to change routines that will result in lower electricity bills.

This first-of-kind program combined educational materials, smart meters installations, CitySmart’s Reduce Your Juice program and contact with local community ‘champions’. The goal was to increase householder energy literacy, drive behaviour change, and reduce household energy use and cost.

The program was deployed over a 24-month period, targeting 4,000 regional households.

Outcomes to date

Average savings of $165 over 6 months and $119 over 12 months

Total energy savings was equivalent to 1,252 tonnes of carbon dioxide

84% of participants who took part in the post-program survey would recommend the program to others

Helped 4000 regional households
