Renew has released a report detailing price rises in home energy across all capital cities between 2022 – 2024, showing that home connected to gas will be hit the hardest.
This report clearly shows that homes using gas will see the highest increase in home energy costs, with those using gas for heating, cooking and hot water facing bill increases of up to $1900 over the next two years. All electric homes are shown to be much much more resilient to the changes, with an average household in Melbourne projected to save more than $2700 a year by switching from gas to all-electric by 2024.
Renew is looking for an experienced Event & Marketing Coordinator to plan, promote and deliver Renew’s flagship annual event, Sustainable House Day in March/April 2024 & other events held throughout the year.
Renew’s policy and advocacy manager Rob McLeod and sustainability researcher Rachel Goldlust explain the government policies helping make the transition off gas possible, and outline what’s still needed to get everyone over the line.
