The Scheme replaces the home insulation program and the solar hot water rebate, which were discontinued in February this year.The Green Loans Program also aims to help households ‘go green’ by providing home sustainability assessments that will help Australians to improve the energy and water efficiency of their homes, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Rebates of up to $500 are available to households for the purchase and installation of a new rainwater tank that is connected for internal reuse of the water for toilet and/or laundry use, or for the purchase and installation of a permanent grey water treatment system.
