Transform The Energy Efficiency Of Your Home For All Year Comfort With Lucinda Flynn in our online webinar as well as our launch of the Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning Bulk Buy Offer!

The Yarra Valley Community Power Hub is proud to offer a range of services to help upgrade the energy efficiency of our homes in the Greater Yarra Valley and Ranges region.  At our FREE webinar on Wednesday 27th of April, 7.30 – 9.00pm join us to learn from our expert speakers all about what we mean by Home Energy Efficiency and the offers we have available for our local communities. We are also launching our first Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning Bulk Buy Offer


Our Keynote Speaker

Lucinda Flynn will launch the YV-CPHub Home Energy Efficiency Program. She is a certified Home Energy Efficiency Assessor who works professionally in the field. She will also be the teacher at the Box Hill Institute training course for our community home energy efficiency advisory volunteers, a course which she has developed specifically for the YV-CPHub and the Box Hill Institute.  Lucinda will inform us about home energy efficiency and what we householders can do to increase the energy efficiency and decrease the carbon footprint of our homes, creating lower energy bills and more comfortable homes all year round, but particularly in extreme weather conditions.

It is well known that Australian homes, unlike those in Europe and those in North America, have not historically been built with thermal qualities in mind. Often our homes are freezing in winter and like ovens in summer, with huge amounts of expensive energy being required to heat and cool them. For those on low incomes or for others in rented accommodation, the situation can be very trying and distressing with electricity and gas budgets going sky high.

This webinar will address what our communities can do to improve this situation. Lucinda Flynn, a certified Home Energy Efficiency Assessor, is the key note speaker and is passionate about taking action on the climate emergency by improving the thermal efficiency of our homes.
