What do Local Council Programs offer?
Some local councils offer:
- Light$mart or Energy$mart programs which include subsidies for LED upgrades and solar PV system installations. Add that to state government incentives such as VEEC’s or ESC’s, federal government rebates for solar together with electricity distributor incentives (where available) and you reduce the upfront cost for energy efficiency and renewable energy significantly.
- Energy Upgrade Finance (EUF) or Building Upgrade Finance (BUF), Victorian and NSW council-based financing mechanisms respectively, enable building owners, tenants and investors to better access long term finance for environmental upgrades, including LED lighting and solar energy, to existing commercial and non-residential buildings on attractive terms.
