Get an idea of how much energy your house uses
A typical 4-person family in Darwin consumes on average 50-80kWh of energy per day, even more depending on how many airconditioners you have and how long they run (you’ll see after reading this how our systems can smash your bill, even with the aircons blasting!). If you want to get specifics, which might be a good idea for your house, you’ll have to refer to your own Jacana bill, looking at a quarter and divide that by 90 (90 days in a quarter) that’s how much energy in kWh’s (kilowatt hours) your property uses.
