Over 5,000 public homes in the ACT will receive energy-efficiency upgrades. Social housing properties are among the most energy-inefficient in Australia, as many were built before minimum standards came into effect.
The upgrades are part of the ACT Government’s $35.2 million Home Energy Support: Public Housing Program.
This investment is part of the $1.7 billion Energy Savings Package announced in the 2023-24 Budget.
$300 million of this package is helping to fund upgrades to 60,000 public homes across Australia.
