Ergon Energy is committed to finding ways to help you to reduce your household electricity use, save money and help the environment. That's why we're trialing different types of programs across Queensland.
These programs are part of the Ergon Energy Demand Management Plan and our Demand Management Outcomes Report (PDF 2.5 mb) provides details on our performance against the plan. It demonstrates Ergon Energy’s commitment towards managing demand as the most significant driver of new network investment – one of the leading contributors to electricity price increases.
The Regional Queensland Energy Efficient Street Lighting Trial (E2SL) is part of a state wide trial to evaluate energy efficient street lighting alternatives to the mercury vapour lamps.
Residential customers in Cairns and Toowoomba can participate in this trial to see how electricity prices may be used to encourage customers to alter their electricity use.
Townsville's Commercial Network Demand Management Pilot aims to reduce demand on the Ergon Energy network and, at the same time, reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Ergon Energy is undertaking a power factor pilot project with nearly 30 major business and industrial customers in and around Toowoomba.
