Electrify your home


Electrifying your home can save you up to $1,770 per year, give you a healthier home and reduce carbon emissions.

How to do it

It doesn’t have to be all at once. Take your time and prepare so that when appliances such as hot water need replacing, you’re ready to make the switch.

If it takes six months or six years, you can reduce your bills and make a safe choice for your household.

Use the Shire's Go Electric Action Plan(PDF, 549KB) to prepare to electrify your home.
