24 September 2013 — Glen Eira City Council has recently launched the Glen Eira Energy Saving Program – designed to encourage households to have energy saving products installed in their homes at no charge.

Under the program, energy saving compact fluorescent lights, door draught seals, chimney draught seals, standby power controllers and water and energy saving showerheads are all being offered for free.

Council has partnered with company Energy Makeovers to implement the program across Glen Eira.

Glen Eira Mayor Jamie Hyams said the council had an ongoing commitment to reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

To take part households sign a form to confirm that they agree to have the products installed and to assign the rights to create Victorian Energy Efficiency Certificates to Energy Makeovers.
