Household alterations

There is a long list of things you can do around the house to help decrease your electricity bills. One of the simple things you can do is to remember to turn off lights and appliances when they aren’t in use. Leaving things like the TV or lights on will continue to increase your power consumption and therefore increase your bills.

You can also implement energy-efficient appliances based on their star rating. This rating suggests how power-hungry and efficient things like fridges, ovens and light bulbs actually are. While some are more expensive to replace, nowadays installing low-energy light bulbs is a cost-effective alteration.

Finally, another thing you can do is to insulate your Adelaide property. Insulation will mean that you will need to spend less time heating and cooling your home for comfort, and therefore use less power during the harsher months.


Solar power is one the best ways to be energy smart and decrease your Adelaide power bills. In conjunction with energy saving practices and solar power, there are other considerations that can be made that will further your savings!


Solar power is a daytime energy source, so one thing you can do to avoid going to the grid for power is to set your appliances such as the washing machine and the dishwasher to run during the day. This will result in further decreasing power consumption.
