Energy affordability package

As part of its energy affordability package, the NSW Government has announced $112.5 million of funding for energy efficiency programs to help households and small businesses save energy and money.

For households

We are helping households to save energy and money. Our $80 million household programs will:

  • provide households with discounts to upgrade their homes through partnering tradespeople and suppliers
  • help concession card holders by offering discounts on new energy efficient fridges and TVs so they can replace old inefficient models (see here to find out if you’re eligible and apply for the appliance replacement offer)
  • provide grants to cover up to half the cost of upgrading community, public and Aboriginal housing to help tenants save energy and money
  • partner with energy retailers to help their energy hardship customers go solar

For small businesses

We’re investing $30 million in small business energy efficiency programs to:

  • provide discounts to upgrade equipment through partnering tradespeople and suppliers
  • provide energy management training and follow up support so businesses know how they can save energy and money

Energy rebates

We’re also increasing energy rebates for concession card holders and other eligible customers
