Cessnock City Council and the Office of Environment and Heritage will host a free workshop to provide residents with practical tips to help reduce energy use and save on energy bills.
The workshop will take place at Cessnock Library on Friday, April from 2pm-4pm.
Residents are invited to come along and learn about the NSW Appliance Replacement Offer, which offers discounts on selected new energy-efficient fridges and televisions to replace old inefficient models.
Concession card holders who own a fridge or TV that is at least six years old and would like to replace it may be eligible for the offer.
Office of Environment and Heritage staff will be on hand to explain the program and assist eligible concession card holders with the application process.
Cessnock mayor Bob Pynsent is encouraging locals to come along, learn some helpful tips and see if they’re eligible for the appliance replacement offer.
“This free workshop is a fantastic opportunity for residents, especially those who can take advantage of the 40-50% discount on a new fridge or TV,” he said.
Book your spot today by calling the library on 4993 4399.
