Save up to 50%

You could save up to 50% on your electricity bill – follow this checklist

Geyser

Replace your electrical element geyser with a solar water heating system or heat pump.

Climate control and home insulation

  • Installing ceiling insulation is the most important step for improving the energy efficiency of your home. During winter  - approximately 40% of heat is lost through the roof if your home is not insulated
  • Insulation makes a home up to 5% warmer in winter (and 10% cooler in summer)
  • Insulation reduces – and postpones - the need to switch on space heaters and climate control systems
  • Insulation contributes to lowering your electricity bill - an insulated and draught-proofed room requires 51% less energy to heat up

In the laundry and kitchen

  • If your fridge, washing machine or dishwasher is more than 10 years old, replace it with a new one. Appliances become energy intensive over time , and newer models are designed to be energy efficient. Look for the ‘international efficiency label’ on products to ensure optimal energy efficiency
  • Replace your conventional oven with an energy efficient convection oven
  • Or, alternatively, install an induction stove; compatible with stainless steel, cast iron and enamel cookware, approximately 90% of energy generated is used for cooking, making an induction stove 25% more energy efficient than conventional stovetops

Less is more … using less energy in your home means a lower electricity bill - and more money in your pocket at month end
