Save Energy, Save Money is Australia’s first energy and price comparison website. Julie Moore, the site's co-founder and director, gives readers all the energy information necessary to make informed decisions. For example, in a recent post entitled Rechargeable V’s non rechargeable batteries & recycling them she shows the setup and running cost of each kind of battery. The bottom line was fascinating and might surprise you. The tabs across the top of the blog offer annual running cost comparisons of things like ovens, computer monitors, televisions, etc. While the information is focused on products available in Australia, I recognized many brands and found the information helpful. My favorite tab is "Green Living". I found tips for each season of the year, an article on understanding energy ratings, and ideas on how we can green up our work environments. A very cool feature on the site is the search button. Just type in your favorite brand of just about anything and it will return with a list of products. Click on a product and you'll find energy ratings and costs. I took a look at Panasonic front-loading washing machines and learned that the most efficient models cost approximately $0.18 per cycle. If you live in Australia, you'll love the green product and service recommendations in the last section of the site. Save Energy, Save Money has a lot to offer everyone. If you have a few minutes, check them out ... I'm betting that you'll find some interesting information.
