Improving energy efficiency in Tasmanian households

Elise Archer,Minister for Environment

Tenders are now open for a service provider to deliver the Hodgman Liberal Government’s $850,000 Power$mart energy efficiency program for low income Tasmanian households.

The program aims to assist Tasmanian low income households to save money on their power bills by reducing their energy usage while also reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

Power$mart Homes will be delivered statewide with participating households receiving:

  • home energy efficiency assessments by appropriately qualified energy assessors, including a personalised energy savings plan;
  • energy efficiency information including resource materials, a face-to-face conversation to discuss the results of the personalised energy savings plan and how to reduce energy use through changes in behaviour; and
  • the supply and installation of a range of low cost energy efficient upgrades including LED lighting, low-flow showerheads, and draught and fridge sealing.

The Power$mart Homes Program is an initiative under the Hodgman Liberal Government’s Climate Action 21: Tasmania’s Climate Change Action Plan 2017-2021
