Does your home need a bit of TLC to make it more comfortable in winter and summer? Through the Energy Savvy Upgrade program, eligible residents can get a home energy assessment at a reduced rate of $100 and up to $1,240 towards upgrades such as insulation, draught proofing, window shading, heating and cooling, lighting, ceiling/pedestal fans and hot water.
By joining in the program you will also learn if you are eligible for any rebates and how to access a lower cost energy deal. Eligible customers will be given assistance to claim the $250 Power Saving Bonus.
To be eligible, householders must be struggling to manage energy costs due to a low income, recent unemployment, living with an ongoing medical condition or disability, caring for someone in these circumstances or other difficult situations. Participants pay $100 for an energy assessment and must contribute at least 40 per cent towards upgrades.
