Essential Energy and AEF – AEF | Australian Energy Foundation

Essential Energy and AEF

We know that energy costs are a big part of the household budget and that many of our customers find it hard to lower their bills without sacrificing convenience or comfort, even more so in these uncertain times.

With this in mind, we’ve partnered with the Australian Energy Foundation, to provide free over-the-phone home energy appointments for our customers. They can help you understand your energy bill and provide advice on actions you can take at home to manage your energy usage.

With the mercury dropping over the past week Essential Energy customers across Bathurst are turning up the heat to keep warm, with some giving little thought to ways they can reduce their energy consumption over the coming months.

Essential Energy Head of Customer Experience, Belinda Kallmier, said winter tends to see an increase in people’s electricity usage which leads to higher electricity bills, bringing more financial pressure to households and businesses during an already difficult time.

To assist customers across Bathurst, Essential Energy is offering free over the phone energy advice through their partnership with the Australian Energy Foundation (AEF), to help people take charge of their electricity use and lower bills.
