Ahead of winter, Money.com.au commissioned an independent survey of 1018 Australian adults to gauge if households will be reducing their energy usage. Respondents were asked a series of questions to determine if they would be changing their energy usage at home to reduce their bills.
These included whether they would limit heating, reduce the use of non-essential appliances, only use appliances and power points when necessary, switch energy providers to get lower rates and reduce the number of days worked from home.
The pool of survey respondents matches the geographical spread of the Australian population.
Money.com.au found that almost half (48 per cent) of respondents said they will limit their heating this winter.
When comparing states, Money.com.au found that the ACT and NSW are the most energy conscious states:
Young people are more likely to lower their energy use.
