6:30pm Monday 7 September - Tim Forcey: Switch from gas to electric

Thousands of Victorian households are missing out on cheaper bills because they are not using their already installed reverse cycle air conditioners to heat their homes as an alternative to gas systems.

The University of Melbourne, Melbourne Energy Institute's report says that large Victorian homes could save as much as $658 a year if they switched off gas heating and increasingly used air conditioners with "heat pump" technology in them. Tim Forcey, report's author and an energy adviser at Melbourne Energy Institute will join us

6:30pm Monday 7 September 2015
Venue TBC*
