Switch on to save

We use and enjoy energy every day, but because we can't see it, it's hard to tell how much we're actually using. Being mindful of our energy use is the first step towards saving energy. 

The good news is that there are easy ways to be energy efficient. With some simple changes you can cut down your energy usage – and save some money along the way. In Origin's Good Energy Switch, our host Sally Williams meets three Aussie households who try to flick some old habits and make the switch to more conscious – and cost-effective – energy usage.

Figures will vary according to factors such as age and size of appliance as well as the actual tariff rate.
