Power Changers Community Connections Program
On very hot days, households can use three times more power than usual. This can place home energy bills – and your local electricity grid – under pressure. Jemena’s Power Changers Community Connections Program offers handy energy saving and efficiency advice for local communities, helping you save on bills while staying cool over the Summer.
Partnering with Uniting, we're running a series of information sessions for customers and community groups across north and north-west Melbourne over Summer to help you better understand your energy usage and share tips for saving energy - while still staying comfortable - on really hot days.
Many of these build on our Power Changers pilot run in early 2018, which successfully helped over 600 customers cut their home energy use at peak times by 23-35 percent on average.
