Southern Tasmanian councils team up on energy efficiency bulk buying

All southern Tasmanian councils, including the City of Hobart, have teamed up with Sustainable Living Tasmania’s to create the Home Energy Bulk Buy for energy-efficient heat pumps, hot water services, insulation, LED lighting, solar panels and other products.

The Home Energy Bulk Buy will be available at the same time as the Tasmanian Government’s Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme (TEEL) that has three-year interest-free loans of up to $10 000 for individuals to install energy-efficient and renewable-energy equipment.

TEEL was launched in May this year as joint initiative of the Tasmanian Government, Aurora Energy and the Westpac Group to provide interest-free finance for the purchase of energy efficient products for Tasmanian households and small businesses. For small businesses the interest-free period is 5 years for amounts of $10,001 up to $40,000.
