You Could Be Rewarded For Turning Your Aircon Off This Summer

With the summer months approaching, the Turnbull government has indicated that families and small businesses will be rewarded for turning off appliances during extreme heat.

This is an attempt to reduce the chance of massive blackouts caused by the energy demand generated by air conditioners.

It is expected that the Turnbull Government will make the announcement today, with over 10,000 AGL customers and hundreds of businesses to receive a power bill discount if they sign up to reduce their electricity usage in hot weather.

“Demand response is successfully used overseas in countries such as the US and New Zealand as a cost effective way of managing ­demand and price spikes, as well as avoiding unplanned outages,” Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg said.
