People on low incomes are often locked out of new, cheaper technologies that can save households thousands of dollars on energy bills each year.
The economic challenge of the COVID-19 crisis means more Queenslanders than ever are under financial pressure, and the economic recovery has a long way to go.
Investing in energy efficiency and solar PV for social housing dwellings will create thousands of jobs during the COVID-19 crisis, ensure that more money is invested in local economies, and result in lower energy bills for low-income households.
emPOWER Homes: A Social Homes Energy Support Stimulus proposal from QCOSS, Queensland Conservation Council and Solar Citizens is a $215 million package that would install solar and energy efficient upgrades on social homes across Queensland, saving households up to $1,100 per year on their energy bills.
The proposal would create more than 1,800 jobs and stimulate local economies during the COVID-19 crisis.
