What is the Home Energy Efficiency Program?

The Society delivers the Home Energy Efficiency Program on behalf of the ACT Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate across the ACT. 

The program supports low income households to reduce their energy bills (electricity and gas), by educating people about energy usage and modifying homes to become more energy efficient.

This is done through home visitations, during which an Energy Efficiency Officer:

  • Performs individual household energy assessment
  • Provides tailored advice to help reduce energy usage
  • Provides heated throw rug and cooling towel
  • Performs draught-proofing of the house
  • Provides new energy efficient products e.g. curtains (subject to additional eligibility requirements)

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

Who benefits from the Home Energy Efficiency Program?
Anyone who is on a low income and is financially disadvantaged. More information is available at Home Energy Efficiency Program.
