The ACT government is expanding its Home Energy Support Program, to include new rebates of up to $2500 for efficient electric appliances.
The program aims to assist low-income households to transition from gas to electric appliances.
The eligible households will include owners who hold a pension concession card, or a Department of Veteran Affairs Gold Card.
Energy Minister Shane Rattenbury said the scheme gets underway from today.
Eligible households could also access the Sustainable Household Scheme, and apply for interest free loans of up to $15,000 to help cover the cost of a house’s energy transition.
Mr Rattenbury said applications for these programs should be processed, and approved in around 48 hours.
He said Canberrans can find more information on the everyday climate choices website, or they can talk to their supplier.
