In a move to bolster sustainability efforts, the Town of Port Hedland has introduced the Home Energy Audit Kit.

This initiative aims to arm residents and businesses with the necessary tools and knowledge to optimise energy use, reduce carbon footprints, and cut utility expenses.

The Home Energy Audit Kit, now available for hire from the Town’s depot in Wedgefield, is made up of user-friendly tools tailored to accommodate different levels of technical expertise.

Accompanied by an instructional booklet, the kits are designed to be accessible to all.

Mayor Peter Carter said implementing the kits could decrease energy bills across the region.

“Lowering energy costs across households is a priority for everyone with the increasing cost of living,” he said.

Each kit includes essential devices and instructions to identify energy inefficiencies.

Key components feature a Power-mate meter, generic thermometer, shower timer, infrared thermometer, and indoor and outdoor thermometers.

Mr Carter urged all residents to participate in the program, as an initial step towards fostering a more energy-efficient home.

The Home Energy Audit Kit is available for a one-week hire period, free of charge.

Inquiries can be directed to the Town’s sustainability advisor Rupa Khatri at rupa.khatri@porthedland.wa.gov.au or by calling 08 9158 9300.
