Save money and electricity

We'd all like to save electricity and money, and there are a number of ways you can do this.

Economy tariffs

You can save money on a range of appliances by connecting them to an economy tariff. Energex offers rewards available for connecting your pool pump or hot water system to an economy tariff. Appliances like these don’t need to be on all day, so they are ideal for economy tariffs – where the electricity is available during particular hours, at a significant discount.

Energy efficiency

Another way of saving on energy is to use energy more efficiently. Energex offers a reward for upgrading to an energy efficient pool pump. Calculate how much you could save with a more efficient pool pump.

You can also save energy by setting your air conditioner to 24°C, upgrading to efficient lighting, or using electrical appliances efficiently.

Renovating or building

Renovating your home, or building a new one – it’s a good time to think about electricity. There are actions you can take now to build in savings for the future.
