50% subsidy for low income households

The NILS Energy Saver program is run by the No Interest Loans Scheme of Tasmania (NILS) and support is available to people who have a Heath Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Department of Veteran’s Affairs Card, have been in their accommodation to at least 6 months and rely on Centrelink (or DVA) for a significant part of their income.

NILS is offering subsidies of 50% off the cost of energy efficient washing machines, fridges, heat pumps, heaters and block out curtains including installation costs. The balance of the cost is provided as a no-interest loan from NILS.  The maximum available (including subsidy AND loan) is $3600.
