Penrith City Council has partnered with Endeavour Energy to promote the AtHomeSaver program to Penrith residents which will assist in understanding their energy use and reducing their electricity bills through energy efficient actions around the home via Endeavour Energy’s PowerSavers app. 

The AtHomeSaver program, which can be accessed from Endeavour Energy’s free PowerSavers app, assists users in reducing their overall energy consumption at home with helpful tips and tricks and challenges. 

Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM said that the AtHomeSaver program was a great way for residents to save on bill costs and understand their electricity usage with coaching tips, polls and quizzes. 

“AtHomeSaver is a great free resource that provides excellent advice to help residents manage their energy usage and reduce electricity bills,” Cr McKeown said. 

“Council understands that it can be difficult to manage expenses when it comes to electricity, especially during the hot summer months, and that’s why we’re encouraging residents to download the PowerSavers app and sign up to participate in the AtHomeSaver program. 

“Around 44% of the total electricity used within the Penrith area is from homes, so saving energy at home will help to reduce our overall energy use, carbon emissions and reduce the load on Penrith’s electricity infrastructure, all whilst saving money on your household bills,” Cr McKeown said. 

Endeavour Energy General Manager Strategy and Insights Leanne Pickering said that AtHomeSaver was designed to assist people to keep their electricity bills in check and be rewarded for their efforts.  

“Knowing when and how you use electricity is the first step to reducing your electricity bill. By making small changes some customers could save hundreds of dollars each year,” Ms Pickering said. 

“Reducing electricity consumption in our homes means we can potentially delay the costs of expensive electricity infrastructure, which adds costs to every customer’s electricity bill.” Residents wanting to sign up should visit or download the PowerSavers app.
