The Tasmanian Government is expanding its $50m Energy Saver Loan Scheme (ESLS) to include EV chargers, further enhancing the menu and access to sustainable solutions it has on offer.
Over the past 12 months, Tasmania has had the highest adoption of EV vehicles across Australia, with close to one in ten vehicle sales being battery electric vehicles (BEV).1 EV vehicles have lower fuel costs and higher efficiency, less maintenance and produce lower emissions, all factors which are particularly appealing in a high cost of living environment.
The inclusion of EV chargers extends sustainability to the next generation of mobility solutions offering customers more flexibility.
Brighte Founder and CEO Katherine McConnell said the inclusion of EV chargers in the ESLS was a progressive step forward for sustainability.
“Making sustainability affordable and accessible to all Australians is key if we are going to move forward in energy transition.”
“Given the increasing appetite and growth of EV vehicles in Australia, the inclusion of EV chargers supports this and offers greater flexibility to how Australians use the sustainable solutions on offer.”
As the exclusive finance and administration provider of ESLS , Brighte administers the program which provides customers with access to interest-free loans of between $500 and $10,000 over 3 years. It also manages all aspects of customer service, vendor onboarding and monitoring and the provision of finance.
The scheme already provides access to rooftop solar, battery storage, heat pumps, energy efficient appliances and double glazing and insulation on properties and business.
