Sustainability Short Course: Save Energy at Home

Wed Aug 11, 10:00 - Wed Aug 11, 11:30


Residential electricity bills are spiralling with no end in sight. An energy-saving intervention in your home is a smart move as you will not only thank yourself when you see the savings on your municipality bill, but you’ll also tread lighter on the earth.

That’s where Urban Earth’s course comes in. In our highly personalised course introducing saving energy at home, we’ll help you understand:

  • How to determine your energy use and associated costs
  • How geysers (water-heating) use energy
  • How lights use energy
  • How various home appliances use energy
  • How to find energy-saving opportunities for your home
  • How to calculate what you’d save if you implement an energy-saving change

You’ll also gain access to our calculation tool to help you meter your daily energy usage and work out how long it will take to pay back an energy-saving intervention in terms of electricity and money saved.

Our classes are small and live, so you are able to ask questions and have them answered in real-time. Your instructor is one of our founders: Urban Earth is a sustainability consultancy with over ten years of experience in supporting sustainability action in South Africa.
