The NSW Government is trialling a new way to help people on low incomes reduce their electricity bills by installing free three kilowatt solar systems on their homes. The target audience for the trial is low income homeowners that hold a valid Pensioner Concession Card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card and are currently receiving the Low-Income Household Rebate.
The program aims to improve energy affordability by helping households unlock long-term savings on their electricity bills.
Participants will need to agree to no longer receive the $285 annual Low-Income Household Rebate on their electricity bill, however they should receive up to $600 in savings on their electricity bill per year from the new solar system.
