Helping families save on their energy bills

The Energy Savvy Families Program, funded by the Queensland Government, supported regional families to better manage their electricity bills. The latest round of the program concluded in December 2019.

Participants earned rewards and saved money

Becoming an Energy Savvy Family helped participants better manage their electricity bills, through learning more about their energy usage and simple ways to manage electricity costs. Participants had fun along the way with chances to earn rewards.

Energy Savvy Families was available to selected households, by invitation only. The program has now concluded.
