Tasmanian Government’s Energy Saver Loan Scheme

Making Energy Savings Easy with Solar

Going solar is a smart choice to save on energy bills. It can also help increase the value of your property and improve the comfort of your home.

The Tasmanian Government’s Energy Saver Loan Scheme helps more Tasmanians make the switch to solar by providing no-interest loans to eligible applicants to fund the purchase price and installation of energy efficient products.

Energy Saver Loans are interest-free, have no establishment fee, and no account-keeping fee – although fees for late repayments do apply.

  • Loans may be issued for amounts between $500 and $10,000.
  • Loans may be issued for terms of one (1) to three (3) years.
  • Loans require fortnightly or monthly repayments (with the entire sum to be paid off by the end of the loan-term).
 

This scheme is fully administered by Brighte.

FAQs about the Energy Saver Loan Scheme

Eligible applicants are:

  • Tasmanians for their principal place of residence
  • landlords with residential tenants
  • small businesses and community organisations (with an electricity consumption lower than 150MWh per year).

 

This means that Energy Saver Loans must be used to purchase and install eligible energy efficient products in Tasmanian properties. These properties are:

  • principal places of residence
  • tenanted residential properties (for example, a property in which you have residential tenants)
  • small business, commercial, or community organisation properties (for example, a property that is used for the predominant purpose of a small business*).
    *These properties may include properties used for holiday accommodation if the use is part of a small business.

 

Loans are capped at $10,000 per property.

No single applicant may be loaned more than $10,000 in total (but accessing the scheme for your primary residence won’t prevent your small business from getting a loan for its own premises).

Loans will only be made available to applicants that have the financial capacity to repay them over the term of the loan. There are no income, house value or asset tests. It’s open to all Tasmanians that want to invest in energy efficiency, so long as they can service the loan.

If you’re not eligible to receive an Energy Saver Loan, then you may be eligible to access other forms of Government assistance. Get in touch for more information.
