Householders may log on to www.elliesrenewable.co.za and enter required household details, or call 0861 355 437 to schedule a visit by an EE installer. Elsat accredited installers are visiting 200 000 homes to replace incandescent and halogen light bulbs with energy efficient lamps.
The aim of Project Power Save campaign is to save 45 megawatts (MW) from the national grid.
Geyser timers are installed on electrical geysers, with energy and water efficient showerheads free of charge. Eskom bears the cost of the equipment and installation, per Watt saved.
Ellies Renewable Energy also offers solar geysers and wind turbines, says Gary Wiltshire. “We are using a network of installers, systems, call centres and offices to champion the project”.
All households qualify for free replacements. Visit www.elliesrenewable.co.za and enter required household details, or call 0861 355 437 to schedule a project visit.

The website may be down or slow due to huge traffic volumes, explained an Elsat call centre official to SHEQafrica.com queries. “The call centre was overwhelemed on the first day, and just took numbers for Ellies staff to call people back”, said the official.
