Between 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm everyone can help reduce peak electricity demand by making simple changes to the way electricity is used in the home.

Sunshine Coast residents now have an exciting opportunity to earn up to $600 in rewards and save on electricity costs by joining the free Sunshine Coast Energy Conservation Community program (ECC).

The program is administered by ENERGEX and supported by council as part of its Energy Transition Planning.

How to join the ECC program

All Sunshine Coast households are invited to participate by taking the following steps:

  • Step 1 – read the letter[261KB]  and brochure posted to all households on the Sunshine Coast in October 2011. These explain what the Sunshine Coast ECC is and how you can take part.
  • Step 2 – visit the ECC website to find out how to participate. The website has information about the program, the range of offers you can choose from, what's involved when you enrol and frequently asked questions.
  • Step 3 – you can join the program using the Join Now button on the ECC website

Alternatively, you can call the ECC team on 1300 360 209 and the friendly staff will help you enrol in the program as well as answer any questions you may have.


The Sunshine Coast ECC was launched in March 2010 and was available to residents of Buderim, Mooloolaba, Mountain Creek and Sippy Downs. Over 1600 residents demonstrated their commitment to sustainable living by taking part in the program.

Due to the popularity of the program, in October 2011 it expanded to include the entire Sunshine Coast region and there are now over 3200 households registered. All Sunshine Coast residents are invited to join the program and benefit from rewards valued up to $600.
