EnergyAustralia, one of the country’s largest energy retailers, has announced an energy-efficiency program aimed at cutting charities’ electricity bills by up to half, backed by an estimated $15 million raised from the sale of renewable energy certificates.

Under the EnergyAustralia Power for Good program, the company will use net proceeds from the sale to do energy audits of participating charities to identify where and how they can use energy more efficiently and sustainably. Based on the audit’s findings, EnergyAustralia will install batteries, solar PV, and smart energy management systems, and provide advice for upgrading appliances.
