What is the Home Energy Assessment program?
The Home Energy Assessment program assists low income households with education and support to reduce their energy bills. This service is funded by the ACT Government Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate. An Energy Efficiency Outreach Officer visits people in their homes and provides a free assessment to determine the best ways to reduce their energy bills and make their household environment more comfortable. This can include help to seal gaps which allow heat to escape from the home, providing heated throw blankets to use instead of heaters, or encouraging the use of clotheslines or indoor clothes drying racks as opposed to dryers. Where appropriate, the program has also assisted in the replacement of old fridges with newer, more efficient models.

Where is the service located?
Our office is located in Deakin, however the Energy Efficiency Outreach Officer can visit you at home anywhere in the ACT.

Who benefits from the Energy Efficiency Outreach Program?
Anyone who is on a low income and is financially disadvantaged.
