The Solar ACT Expands Home Energy Support Program Australia is a new initiative that will help low-income households save on their energy bills. The program will provide $200 towards the cost of a new solar system, and will also offer interest-free loans of up to $2,000 to help with the upfront cost. The program is open to all low-income households in the ACT, and will be delivered through the ACT government’s existing Home Energy Action Program.
The Solar ACT Home Energy Support Program provides financial assistance to eligible households to help with the costs of installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system.
The program is open to eligible households in the ACT who do not currently have a PV system installed, and who meet the following criteria:
– The household’s income is below the Low Income Household Rebate income thresholds.
– The household has an existing solar PV system that is less than 10kW in capacity, and is looking to replace or upgrade it.
– The household is a tenant of public or community housing, and the landlord has given permission for the installation of a PV system.
The program provides a rebate of up to $1,500 for the installation of a PV system, which can be used to offset the costs of installation.
To be eligible for the rebate, households must install a PV system that meets the following criteria:
– The system must have a minimum capacity of 1.5kW.
– The system must be installed by a CEC-accredited installer.
– The system must be connected to the grid.
Solar ACT is expanding its home energy support program to help more households in the ACT switch to solar power.
The program will provide up to $3,000 for eligible households to install a new solar photovoltaic (PV) system, or $1,500 for households that already have a PV system to upgrade to a more efficient system.
Solar PV systems can save households up to $600 a year on their electricity bills, and the ACT government is committed to helping more households make the switch to solar power.
The Solar ACT Home Energy Support Program is open to all households in the ACT, regardless of income. To be eligible, households must:
– Be connected to the ACT electricity grid
– Use less than 50 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity per year
– Have a PV system that is less than 10 kilowatts (kW) in size
– Not have received any other government funding for PV systems in the past
