Australia offers extensive renewable and non-renewable energy resources including natural gas, oil, coal and uranium and produces energy for domestic and export consumption. As new technologies emerge, Australians are becoming more productive in the use of energy.

The energy industry contributed more than $97 billion in 2016 making it a major contributor in the Australian economy. Renewable energy accounted for 14% in Australia’s total electricity generation in 2015, and 2% is from the continued growth of solar generation. With the large-scale solar installations in several states across the country and rooftop solar PV installations, renewable energy remains strong with 23% growth which continues to make up the majority of total solar generation in Australia.


In collaboration with leading industry partners, the extensive experience of AICA in the electrical and renewable energy sectors gives us a competitive advantage in an ever evolving industry. With a multi-dimensional business model, we are consistently embracing all aspects that enable the provision of customised solutions to suit customer and business requirements.

We are one of the leading solar Photovoltaic (PV) solutions providers in the country, catering both to residential and commercial areas. Our engineers and accredited electricians design PV system layouts and execute solar installations and have been commissioned with over 5,000 installations across Western Australia.


Just how much energy are you using? Find out your daily energy use and cost plus some handy tips on how you can save.


    In an average Australian home heating and cooling appliances contribute most to your electricity bill
    • Try and use fans to cool your home instead of the air conditioner unless the temperature is more than 30 deg.
    • Use inverter type airconditioners that are sized, installed and used in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations – they’ll use up to 40% less energy than other air-conditioners.
    • In winter, open your curtains in the middle of the day to let the warm sun in. In summer, use your blinds to block out the sun’s heat.
    • Warm yourself up with few extra blankets or jumpers before switching on heater. Once you have few extra layers you probably don’t need to heat the whole room.
    • Install special purpose-built window and door seals to stop the cold / hot air from escaping outside.
    • Have your gas-ducted heating system zoned, to heat the living areas during the day and bedrooms at night and always close the doors to rooms you’re not using so the heat stays in.

    • Light your workspace not the entire room.
    • Install motion sensors on your security lights – so you don’t have to remember to turn them off at night,
    • Switch to LEDs or compact fluorescent light bulbs – you could save up to 80% energy per globe.
    • Use solar lights to light up your garden pathways - they store energy during the day and then light up automatically at night.

    • If you have a second fridge, only turn it on when it’s needed - that 400L ‘beer’ fridge can cost you around $220 a year
    • Keep your fridge and freezer at optimal temperature. For fridge its between 3°C and 5°C, and the freezer to somewhere between -15°C and -18°C. Every degree lower after that uses around 5% more energy.
    • Check if your fridge door is sealed properly
    • Thaw frozen food in fridge not in microwave. It might take a bit longer, but more energy efficient
    • When cooking, set your oven to fan forced - it cooks quicker and more evenly than conventional settings.
    • Clean all your dirty dishes at the same time.
    • Consider upgrading to a new dishwasher of your current one was manufactured in the early 90s – chances are it’s using twice as much water and 40% more energy.
    • An in-ground pool can use as much as 30% of your home’s electricity bill. Check to see if yours can be connected to an off peak meter tariff – so you can make some great savings.
    • Use standby power controllers or turn off small appliances when you’re not using them. They mightn’t be big, but they can use 5% of the average home’s energy.
    • Always check the energy-rating label when it’s time to buy a new appliance. The more stars it has, the more energy efficient it is.

    Hot water uses around 25% of your home’s energy – and is the largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions in the average Australian home
    • Check the temperature of your thermostat. The most efficient temperature for your hot water system is 60 degree Celsius
    • Consider a solar hot water system.
    • Stick to short, four-minute showers. You’ll save water, energy and money.
    • Ditch the heated towel rails – they can cost up to $200 a year in energy.
    • Switch from a standard showerhead to a 3-star rated head. You could reduce your hot water by half.
    • Leave your mixer tap in the cold position, so hot water isn’t wasted cooling in the pipe.

    • Dry your clothes on a line rather than using your dryer – you can save around $130 a year.
    • When it’s time to buy a new washing machine look for one with:
      • A fast spin cycle - Some of the best machines have spin speeds over 1600 rpm
      • An autosensing control that switches off when your clothes are dry
      • At least a 4-star energy rating and 4-star water rating
      • Or choose a front loader, you’ll use even less water and energy
    • Try and do your ironing in large batches – that way you won’t waste energy heating and reheating your iron every time.
