Energy saver program
Yarra Council, the City of Melbourne and energy partners have launched a scheme that aims to take the confusion – and some of the cost – away from going green at home.
Energy saver - it all starts at home
“Energy saver- it all starts at home” offers renters and home-owners free and low-cost improvements to the energy performance of households.
Council is working with installation companies to help residents access all of the subsidies that are on offer from the State and Federal governments.
Energy Saver – It All Starts at Home provides residents in Yarra and Melbourne with:
- free energy assessments
- free products and installation of energy saving technology such as light globes and showerheads
- reduced cost technologies such as solar hot water and draft proofing.
