Interest-free loans
No interest loans available

The Tasmanian Government's long-awaited $10 million interest-free loan scheme for energy efficiency and renewable energy is due to commence in March. You will be able to loan up to $4,000 for households and up to $10,000 for small businesses with no interest for 5 years. So, now is the time to work out what you want and get quotes through our social enterprise Eco Home Guide. You should also register your interest with Aurora (who the scheme is being administered by) to be notified as soon as the scheme opens. Don't miss out!

CarrotMob Tasmania
Survey results

Thank you to the hundreds of Tasmanians who participated in our Carrotmob Tasmanian waste survey. Some respondents questioned the need for a $100 waste levy and others stated that they did not feel comfortable taking their own takeaway containers (like keep cups). The overwhelming majority however supported a container deposit scheme and a statewide switch from plastic to compostable takeaway containers.
