ABC Online has news on the “success” of the woodheater replacement rebate:
About 370 households have received a $600 rebate in exchange for swapping over to gas or electricity.
The rebate has now been increased to $800 until the end of June, when the program is due to come to an end.
Hmmm, one wonders if 370 wouldn’t be the same number of people wanting to get rid of their woodheaters anyway?
I can’t say I’ve noticed any improvement in Canberra’s early morning haze, and the smell of woodsmoke at night in Turner is pronounced.
