Home energy assessments for renters

Renters’ Home Energy Assessments


The ACT Government Renters’ Home Energy Assessments program provides Australian Capital Territory residents who rent their home with free energy assessments.

Trial assessments will start in mid-August 2020. The first 100 rental households that participate will also receive a free heated throw rug – a good way to keep warm in winter while keeping your electricity bills low.
