Free home visits to help households reduce their energy use

Anglicare WA, Red Cross (Darwin College) and the Geraldton Resource Centre are now delivering the Federal government’s new Home Energy Saver Scheme (HESS) across Western Australia. The HESS program provides free, relaxed and friendly home visits by professional and experienced home energy assessors.  If your clients are wondering why their energy bills are so high, and/or are looking for advice on how to reduce their bills — then a HESS home visit may be for them!

During the visit to your home, the HESS service provider will:

Look at your electricity, gas and water bills with you, and help you understand how to read your bills/monitor your energy usage.

Provide you with a personalized list of actions recommended to reduce your energy usage and save you money.

Be able to let you know about other places you can go for assistance, ie. provide referrals to financial counselors, the WA NILS program and ER providers.

In order to get the most out of the home visit, you are encouraged to: Have your electricity, gas and water bills handy (for as far back as possible). Have all the members of your household there.  

Allow 1-1.5 hours for the visit. If you can't keep your appointment, let the service provider know as soon as possible.

To arrange a home visit, please contact:  Geraldton Resource Centre — Phone (08) 9938 0600 or email Leeanne Robertson leeanner@grc.asn.au or Amy Eastough amy@grc.asn.au.
