Energy Minister Bill Johnston has announced the delivery of a range of measures to assist vulnerable households in reducing their energy costs through the four-year, $13 million Household Energy Efficiency Scheme.
This scheme is planned to commence mid-2021 and include services such as household energy assessments, tailored education, LED lightbulb replacements and other low-cost energy efficient items.
Energy Policy WA has commenced detailed planning for the scheme, which will be delivered through a partnership between Non-Government Organisations and electricity retailers Synergy and Horizon Power.
The scheme aims to address some of the underlying factors that contribute to high household energy costs and complements previously announced short term relief measures such as the $600 Western Australian Government Household Electricity Credit.
Western Australian based Non-Government Organisations with experience and expertise in delivering energy efficiency programs for disadvantaged households are encouraged to register their interest via the link below that takes you to a form to fill in your contact details to receive further information.
Further details and formal selection arrangements for partner organisations will be announced in early 2021.
