This website is for homeowners, tenants, landlords, builders, architects, tradespeople, appliance retailers and installers, property managers and others with an interest in energy use in buildings.
The ACT now offsets 100% of its electricity consumption with electricity generated from wind and solar, so switching off gas in our buildings will immediately reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
However, no matter where you live in Australia, this website can help you make a difference to the comfort, energy costs and environmental impacts of your home. If you live outside the ACT, you can go all-electric and use renewable electricity by purchasing green electricity from your retailer or investing in solar panels.
The Make the Switch Calculator allows you to estimate the costs and savings of switching from gas appliances to electric appliances, in existing homes and new buildings. Find out how much greenhouse gas you could avoid by switching to 100% renewable electricity.
Switching is easier than you think!
