About this Event

Would you like to save money on your energy and water bills? Do you want to take local action on climate change but don't know where to start? This session is for you!

Jason Menzies from Be Sustainable will share practical tips that are relevant for all homes - whether you're in your dream home or renting on a tight budget. This session provides advice that will inspire you to head home and start making changes.

Households use lots of energy to keep us comfortable so that we can do the things we enjoy. A third of the energy used in our homes is for heating and cooling. Learn how to cut back your energy and water use while keeping comfortable and enjoying doing the things you love.

Fun fact: Did you know that every square metre of window receiving direct sunlight is the same as leaving a one bar radiant heater on? Jason will reveal how to shade those sunny areas in summer through a range of creative ideas that could be tailored to suit all homes.

Water heating also uses a third of the energy in our homes. Find out why and what you can do about it in your home.

Jason will also cover how to create micro-climates in your garden to reduce energy and water use in your home as well as some information about the benefits of installing solar power.

The City of Stirling offers a range of Living Green initiatives to help residents create sustainable sanctuaries in their home. To find out more follow this link.
