What do our customers say?

Frog and loud speaker“Danielle and Green Moves provided a full energy audit report and “Victorian Residential Energy Scorecard” for my apartment. Danielle was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly throughout the process. The report Danielle provided was much more thorough than I expected and prioritised energy efficiency improvements based on the savings versus the upfront cost. Given various improvements possible, this was highly valuable and took the guesswork out of where to direct improvements. Further, the report detailed expected electricity use given the apartment’s appliances and highlighted a large portion of ‘unidentified usage’ that was tracked down to a secondary water heater that I was not previously aware of – switching this off has halved my electricity usage!! I highly recommend Green Moves.” Dan B. Fitzroy, VIC
