Residential estate trials new technology to slash power bills

While families around the country are bracing for more power price pain this winter, one group of Aussies claim receiving their electricity bill is cause for celebration.

When Les Rose moved into an over 50s residential estate on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, he knew his life was about to become more carefree, but he could never have imagined that would also apply to his electricity bills.

“We’re averaging about $6 to $10 a month,” Mr Rose said.
