Climate Council is inviting all members of the Australian community to sign our open letter calling for zero-interest loans to help electrify households.

Up-front costs are the biggest barrier to Aussie households making their homes more energy efficient. By providing zero-interest loans, governments at all levels can support Australians to electrify and upgrade their homes so that everyone – including renters, and those with lower incomes – can immediately start enjoying the benefits of living in clean, energy-efficient homes.

If you think governments should support Aussie households to go electric, add your name now.

Read the open letter below:

NOTE: If you’re a resident of Tasmania or the ACT, your government is already rolling out zero or low interest loans for clean energy upgrades. You can still add your name to the open letter, and call for these programs to be rolled out nationally. Or, for more information on how to apply for a loan in your state, check out the ACT’s Sustainable Household Loans Scheme or Tasmania’s Energy Saver Loans Scheme.
