ActewAGL has installed its 1 millionth free energy saving device as part of its free Energy Saving House Calls program.

The milestone installation took place at Kamberra Function Centre, with venue director Lachlan Exton saying the business will save about $1000 a year.

“We’ve had over 140 halogens swapped for free which is a big help for our business,” he said.

ActewAGL general manager retail Ayesha Razzaq said more than 850,000 energy efficient light bulbs and 48,000 door seals have been removed in homes and businesses throughout the ACT since 2013. Around 3000 old fridges have also been removed.

“This is a really exciting milestone. Our team of authorised installers have been out and about in Canberra for the last three and a half years installing a range of free energy saving devices, and it’s fantastic that we’ve been able to assist so many customers,” Ms Ayesha said.

So far, the majority of ActewAGL’s installations have occurred at residential properties and the program has recently been expanded to include small business.

Energy Saving House Calls are provided free of charge to homes and businesses in the ACT.
