Was one of your new year’s resolutions to become more energy efficient in 2021? There are a number of good reasons for doing so and not just shaving hundreds of dollars off your electricity bill each year.
Becoming energy wise is a trend that is growing within communities worldwide.

He has Mother Nature passively working day and night to keep temperatures inside his home around 23 degrees celsius on every day of the year. Not only is his family’s home more thermally comfortable but he says that what he has set in place between 2012 and 2028 will put his family more than $90,000 ahead of a similar household during that period.
His family supplied their own electricity from 1996 until 2012 when they went interactive and began selling their excess energy back into the grid. He says even if you missed out on accessing the high feed in tariffs back in 2012 the game is not over. He says the game is never over but the best time to learn the benefits of home energy efficiency is as soon as you can.
He says once you know a few simple truths you can reap the
benefits of that understanding for the years and decades ahead.
