Energy efficiency at home

I am running a half-day workshop this coming Saturday at Northey Street City Farm on how to save energy at home. It covers

  • how to estimate how much power devices are using
  • how to find the best places to invest in energy efficiency at your place
  • how to use the garden to reduce cooling costs
  • some technical understanding of electricity and its supply
  • how to examine behaviours seeking simple changes to save energy and money
  • how to cook to reduce energy use

Here is a link to the manual I have developed. I will refine this in the future and keep this site up-to-date. It is covered by a CC license (details in the pdf). Any comments or suggestions are welcome and will be considered for incorporation.
