Afternoon Tea Q&A with Rebekah Thielemans from Energy Consumers Australia

8 Dec 2022
3:00pm - 3:30pm

Plug In to Consumer Energy Resources

Join us for afternoon tea at 3pm AEDT Thursday 8 December as we hear from Rebekah Thielemans from Energy Consumers Australia.

Australians are flocking to take up solar, batteries, and electric vehicles. But we all know that the energy system is complex and this can be a confusing process, leaving many people locked out or with sub-optimal outcomes. That’s why Energy Consumers Australia has launched Plug In – an independent hub with factsheets, blogs, and videos to remove the guesswork for people wanting to buy or use new energy technology.

The Plug In materials are free resources that have been designed for organisations such as local council to use and distribute to support their communities. Already we’re working with dozens of organisations who are benefiting from these resources. 

Find out: 

  • what’s included in the resources, 
  • how your council can better support consumers wanting to make the switch to new energy tech, 
  • and how you can get involved.
