ACT Sustainable Household Scheme

The Scheme will be open to all eligible ACT households early in the 2021-22 financial year.

Check eligibility

The ACT Government have announced the Sustainable Household Scheme, and we’re excited to share that we’ve been selected as the exclusive finance partner.

As the impacts of climate change become even more evident, the ACT Government have developed this Scheme alongside the community to not only take meaningful action to limit our contributions to global warming, but to do so in a way that improves our quality of life.

The Scheme reflects our joint efforts to be part of the clean energy transition, allowing Aussie households to save on their energy bills and helping our partners grow their business so together we can accelerate the uptake of sustainable homes.

What is the Sustainable Household Scheme?

The Scheme offers 0% interest loans of between $2,000 to $15,000 to eligible ACT households to help with the upfront costs of investing in energy efficient home upgrades.

How does it help?

The objective is to encourage sustainable solutions at the community level that will:

  • help reduce energy use and costs
  • help households live more comfortably
  • contribute to greenhouse gas emissions reductions; and
  • support development of the renewable energy industry in the ACT

When does the Scheme begin?

The Scheme will be open to all eligible ACT households early in the 2021-22 financial year. Currently the Scheme is in pilot for select individuals and businesses to ensure it is operating efficiently. As updates become available, this page will be updated to include launch dates.

Which products will the Scheme include?

The Scheme will include products such as:

Rooftop solar panels
Household battery storage systems
Electric heating and cooling systems
Hot Water Heat Pumps (HWHP)
Electric stove tops
Electric vehicles
Vehicle charging infrastructure
