Qld State Govt charge $50 to do an ‘audit’ on your house – they leave a monitor that tells you what you’re using energy wise, but that’s about it. We should have changed all our light bulbs to the old type and our shower head to a water inefficient one and then we would have got some new stuff.
We were ripped off and paid $50 for the…
