Outreach Program to save low income households $500 a year on utility bills.

By Charlotte - 7 June 2011 2

Simon Corbell, the ACT Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development, has announced a $7.8m Outreach Program that plans to save 4000 Canberra low income households up to $500 a year on their utility bills.

“The program will provide comprehensive energy efficiency assistance through home energy assessments, education, appliance replacement and retrofits. Up to 4000 vulnerable households will benefit from this initiative over the next 4 years,” he said.

The program will also apparently help these households reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, helping the ACT government achieve its goal of a 40 per cent emissions cut by 2020.

Low income households are eligible whether they are home owner-occupiers, private renters, or in government rental properties.
