While living in a rental property may rule out big-ticket energy efficiency measures, there are still plenty of steps you can take to reduce your power usage significantly.
The rental market is big business in Australia; in 2020, around 32% of the population rented their homes.

As a renter, you may want to be more energy efficient and sustainable, but you don’t want to overinvest in someone else’s property – especially when your tenancy is likely to be short-lived.
While installing solar panels or sealing those draughty floorboards mightn’t be an option for your rental property, there are still many things you can do to decrease your household energy use.
