Energy Smart Homes

During May and June 2021, we ran workshops and provided information on the latest government grants and incentives to support households in reducing their energy use and saving money.

We uploaded all the workshop recordings, notes and resources so Wyndham residents can take part at any time.

Why be part of the Energy Smart Homes program?

No matter what your budget is, you can make changes in your home (owners and renters) to improve your energy management to save money and act on climate change. This program includes;

  • Understanding your energy bills and monitoring your energy use
  • Latest government rebates and incentives to access funding to upgrade your home
  • Using clean green energy options
  • How to reduce your home energy without spending a cent
  • LOW-MED cost upgrades to your home to save energy and money
  • Solar and battery for your home
  • How our little changes at home can make big action on climate change

Wyndham residents, community and businesses can also get free energy advice from the Metro Community Power Hub.

Free Energy Advice Service

Council has partnered with the Metro Community Power Hub (MCPH) to offer our residents free and independent advice on the right renewable solutions for you.

The MCPH Solar Program is here to make your transition to cleaner, cheaper energy as easy and smooth as possible.

Wyndham is proud to offer this program to our local community as we move towards a net zero future which benefits everyone.

We can all be part of the solution on climate change!

Our climate is changing and with this change comes a whole raft of challenges for our natural environment and current way of life. A large contributor to this is the energy demands of our modern society. We all make up the demand and it is up to us to reduce it, starting at our homes where we spend a lot of time and have the most control.

Together we can fight climate change and improve the world for everyone.

Visit the Climate Council to understand what climate change is and how you can make a difference.
