We all love a champion, whether it be in sport, school or at work. At Alice Solar City, we love to celebrate Energy Champions and we reckon Alice Springs has more than its fair share of them. We talk to them every day and we are inspired by the energy savings they have achieved at home and in business.
Some have saved over 60% since joining Alice Solar City!
That is why we declared 2012 the Year of Energy Champions. Running from March 2012 (our 4th Birthday!) to March 2013, we celebrated the achievements of the Alice Springs community, and the households and businesses who have been quietly making big changes in the way they use and think about energy.
Over 2900 Alice Springs households and over 200 businesses have joined our program in the last five years, and with just a few months to go we want to support the Alice Springs community to continue its energy efficiency efforts and to help them reduce their electricity bills.
If you and your household think you have what it takes to be declared an energy champion, then why not nominate to join Alice Solar City’s online Wall of Champions? We simply need your permission to place a brief energy champion story on our website. Click here to find out more .
Twenty Seven households took part in our residential Energy Challenge, making a public commitment to a 10% or 20% reduction in electricity consumption. Read about how they had planned to make the reduction and be inspired to think about a target you could set your household.
Nine businesses are also participated in our commercial energy challenge, proving that saving energy makes good business sense.
