Home energy audit

Do you want to understand how much energy you are using at home and identify how you can reduce that use?

Home Energy Audit Toolkits are available for loan at each of Council's three libraries:

  • Park Holme Library
  • Cultural Centre Library
  • Cove Civic Centre

The kit includes a range of practical tools to help residents complete an energy audit of their own home.

You can also do your own basic home energy audit online using a checklist prepared by the South Australian Government.

Energy Made Easy

Energy Made Easy is a free Australian Government energy price comparison service for households and small businesses. The website can be used to find and compare home and small business electricity and gas plans. They provide all the details you need to make an informed decision but you need to contact the retailer of your choice, to switch to a new plan.

Do energy retailers provide energy efficiency incentives?

Check out the Retail Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) website that has been designed to improve energy productivity for households, businesses and the broader energy system with a focus on low-income households.

Under the REPS, most energy retailers operating in South Australia are required to provide energy productivity activities (incentives) for households and businesses. These activities may include a discount on services, free products or products up to a certain value, a cash rebate, vouchers etc.

The REPS presents an opportunity for energy efficiency businesses, welfare groups, local governments, manufacturers and other service providers to work in partnership with energy retailers in achieving their targets.

The REPS is administered by the Essential Services Commission of South Australia (ESCOSA), and commenced on 1 January 2021.
