Too many Victorian families are stuck in a bind:

They'd save hundreds on their power bills with a newer, more efficient heating system – but the cost to get it replaced is always out of reach.

So they keep paying more and saving less.

We're about to change that.

We're helping 250,000 low-income households replace their old heater with an energy-efficient electric heater and cooling system – saving them up to $900 a year.

We're also improving the energy efficiency of over 35,000 social housing properties through heating, cooling and hot water upgrades – plus replacing seals on windows and doors.

And because no one should have to choose between keeping the lights on and putting food on the table, we're providing $250 payments for eligible concession card holders to help with immediate costs.

It's all part of the biggest household energy efficiency package of any state, ever – supporting thousands of jobs all up, saving families hundreds every year and helping to drive emissions down.

This past winter has been a long, hard slog. More time at home has meant bigger bills.

And this investment will help Victorians not just get through today – but plan for tomorrow too.

We ticked over our 100,000th Solar Homes installation the other day.

That means 100,000 Victorian families with half-price solar who paid nothing up front – and are already saving on their bills.

Now we're expanding the program further so an additional 42,000 households can get panels, and 17,500 households with solar already installed can get a battery rebate – in every corner of the state.

We're also opening things up to businesses for the first time, with 15,000 small business rebates available to take some of the pressure off.

This is all about putting power back in your hands – saving money, reducing emissions and creating thousands of jobs at the same time.
