Home Energy Efficiency and Induction Stove Kits now available at Myli Libraries
Myli Libraries, in partnership with Bass Coast, Baw Baw, Cardinia Shire, and South Gippsland councils, is thrilled to announce the launch of an exciting new initiative aimed at empowering residents to embrace energy efficiency and sustainability.
From today, local libraries are offering Home Energy & Water Efficiency Kits and Portable Induction Cooktops, free for community members to borrow. These innovative kits have been carefully curated to provide practical tools for residents to enhance energy efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint, and make sustainable choices within their homes.
The Home Energy & Water Efficiency Kits are packed with a wide range of resources and devices that enable homeowners to assess, track, and improve the energy efficiency of their dwellings. Residents will have access to energy meters to monitor electricity consumption, thermal imaging cameras to identify areas of heat loss, and water-monitoring devices to reduce water usage. Additionally, the kits include information and tips on energy-saving practices that residents can implement in their daily lives.
Complementing the Home Energy Efficiency Kits, the Portable Induction Cooktops aim to promote sustainable cooking habits and allow residents to ‘try before you buy’. These kits feature portable induction stoves, which are energy-efficient alternatives to traditional stovetops. Induction cooking technology utilizes magnetic fields to heat cookware directly, resulting in faster and more efficient cooking while using significantly less energy.
These kits are now available to borrow at local Myli libraries, completely free of charge. The loan period will ensure community members have ample time to experiment with the tools, gather valuable insights, and implement energy-efficient practices within their homes.
Leanne Williams, Myli Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are absolutely thrilled to launch this initiative in partnership with Bass Coast, Baw Baw, Cardinia Shire, and South Gippsland councils. It presents a great opportunity for our community members to take positive steps towards embracing energy efficiency and sustainability. By providing these innovative resources for free, we hope to empower our members to make informed choices and contribute to a more sustainable future for our region.”
Cr Annemarie McCabe, Myli Board Chair and Baw Baw Shire Council Mayor, expressed her enthusiasm for the collaboration between the councils of Bass Coast, Baw Baw, Cardinia Shire, South Gippsland, stating, “Through this remarkable partnership, the councils have joined forces to make a lasting positive impact on the environment and lead the way towards a greener and more resilient future.”
