It said: "The income crowd.
We can't offset all the price increases, but some small changes can lead to a big cut in our annual electricity bill.
"You don't have to be an environmental scientist to save energy," says Anne Armansin, efficiency advocate at Origin energy . ".
"Looking for more signs of energy you use may be more than you need.
With lights on in unused rooms, high energy bills and shorts in winter can be a real giveaway.
"There are 10 ways to help you reduce the cost of home power. 1.
It is not allowed to turn off unnecessary lights.
Smarter, but replacing old bulbs with energy-efficient bulbs can also save you money.

At the laundromat, the cost of using the clothes dryer is about $1 per unit, so if you are a regular user, the cost will increase quickly.
Armansin said it would be helpful to upgrade the laundry equipment.
"Compared to the top loader, the amount of water and energy used by the front loading washing machine is about 60 cents less," she said . ".
"Switch to the sensor dryer that automatically turns off when the load is dry. "3.
Daniel eccombe, managing director of solar stores in Australia, said that about household energy in the country has been wasted on backup power supplies.
"Consider using a power board with a remote control switch," he said . ".
"For example, a TV, stereo and DVD player plugged into a power board with a remote switch can be turned off immediately, eliminating any unnecessary backup power use.
"Reducing backup power can save $180 a year for regular homes. 4.
Following the stars to replace old white items with energy-efficient products can have a big impact on your home bill, Edgecombe said.
"Star ratings make it easy.

Armansin of Origin says the installation of heat pumps, solar hot water systems or the renovation of existing systems can save $100 in energy costs per year. 9.
Some people like the hot "set the heater to a comfortable 20C," Armansin said ".
"Carpets and options use heaters only on days when the minimum temperature is 10C or less, not 12C, saving $100 to $200 in operating costs per year.
"Use a heated throw instead of a portable heater to keep warm while watching TV or reading.
The running cost is less than 5 hours compared to at least 23 hours. "10.
COOL RUNNINGArmansin said the cooler should be set to 24 C and the blinds, curtains and windows should be closed on a hot morning.
Only using air conditioners on days when the maximum temperature is over 30 degrees celsius instead of 28 degrees Celsius can save up to $200 a year, she said.
Replace the air conditioner with a fan.
"The average running time of the fan is less than 1 hour, while the minimum air conditioner is about 12 hours," she said . "

So far, more than 14,500 people have nominated their streets.
