Neighbourhood Energy

Wangaratta Sustainability Network (WSN) will commence its ‘Neighbourhood Energy’ program with a drop-in session next Wednesday June 26th from 1-4 pm at Open Door Neighbourhood House. Anyone may come along to have a conversation about practical energy saving tips in the home. There will be assistance to use Energy Compare and claim the $50 bonus back from the Victorian Energy Compare scheme – to do this you will need to bring a full copy of a recent gas or electricity bill. https://compare.energy.vic.gov.au/

All are welcome and afternoon tea will be provided.

WSN Secretary Rowan O’Hagan said ‘This is a great opportunity to learn about saving energy, cutting your power bills and receiving a bonus back. You can call in anytime during the afternoon and WSN members will be there to assist.’

Following  this,  on  Wednesday  July  3  from  5.30  –  7  pm,  again  at  Open  Door,  there  will  be  an introduction to solar and renewable energy solutions for households, whether renting or owning your own home, and the options available for assistance.
