Power to save

New initiatives by the NSW Government are set to deliver big power bill savings for Clarence Valley homes and small businesses, according to Clarence Nationals MP Chris Gulaptis.

“The latest policy which enables people to swap old light bulbs for discounted energy efficient ones could save families $200 a year and small firms up to $2300,” Mr Gulaptis said.

“All you need to do is go online to the NSW Government’s new Power to Save website where you’ll find the details of approved suppliers who have been contracted to install these discounted lights.”

Under the same program people on pensions can get 40 per cent discounts for replacing fridges that are more than five years old and 50 per cent for replacing older model televisions, specifically plasma or cathode ray tube ones.

Other cost-saving resources can be found on the new Power to save portal including free training and webinars, details of existing energy rebates and the NSW Home Energy Action appliance replacement offer.
