Home Energy Saver Scheme to help vulnerable Australians
Financially vulnerable Australians are a step closer to being well equipped with tools to be more energy efficient, with the appointment of 19 not-for-profit organisations to help deliver the Home Energy Saver Scheme.
The not-for-profit organisations will deliver these energy efficiency services to around 100,000 low-income households.
Householders will also have access to advice, support and referral to financial products such as the No Interest Loans Scheme to enable them to make longer term energy efficiency improvements.
The selected organisations will now focus on recruitment and training in preparation for the commencement of the Home Energy Saver Scheme from 1 July 2012.
