Reduce your household energy use and save on your electricity bills by using your air conditioner in a smarter way over the summer period.

Council is partnering with Endeavour Energy to offer residents in Glenmore Park, Jamisontown, Kingswood, Penrith and South Penrith the opportunity to register to participate in the CoolSaver program. As part of the program, you will receive a free smart thermostat to control your air conditioner with your smart device at any time and from anywhere allowing you to use energy more efficiently.

For more information or to register, visit Endeavour Energy or call them on 133 718.

Council held a very popular free energy workshop in March. The workshop was delivered by independent industry experts on topics including saving energy, solar, battery storage, as well as rebates and assistance.
