Consumer smarts can save you hundreds on your power bill

The Australian

Research, regular check-backs, and savvy bargaining with providers can save you hundreds on your power and gas bills.

You can save money by reducing energy use. Smart home products by the likes of Telstra and Honeywell let you manage energy use by phone. Using meters that tell you power usage for each appliance can pinpoint where a power drain is.

If you have solar panels, consider services such as Greensync and blockchain-driven Power Ledger that can sell power back to the grid.
