Free solar systems on offer under NSW’s $128m plan

Free solar systems and appliance upgrades are on offer for eligible houses across New South Wales under a new $128 million government initiative.[1]

The Energy Bill Buster program will be handed down in Treasurer Matt Kean’s upcoming state budget.

Households receiving energy rebates will be able to put their hands up for either a free solar system, or energy-saving upgrades to home appliances.

The latter option will be available to renters and to people in homes unsuited to solar power installations.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said about one million NSW households would soon be eligible to take part in the program.

According to government figures, the solar system could save a household up to $600 a year, instead of the annual $285 low income household rebate.
