Do you know how much energy your home uses? Are you interested in reducing your energy bills? Would you like to learn how to use a power meter?
Transition Hobsons Bay is running an energy workshop where you can learn how to use an Australian made Power Mate energy meter, find out how to make sense of your energy bills and learn how to do an energy audit of your own home.
Experienced THB members will lead the workshop. As well as stepping through your energy bills, you will learn how to use the power meter to measure how much energy an electrical appliance consumes when it is in use, how much energy it uses in stand-by mode, what it is costing you to run and the greenhouse gas emissions that it produces. By the end of this workshop you’ll be able to do an audit on the electrical devices in your own home for free – you won’t even need to buy a power meter as the Power Mate energy meters are available for loan through Hobsons Bay City Council libraries. The workshop will include opportunities for questions and discussion.
