The Smart Energy Grants help Northern Territory owners of residential or investment properties undertake energy efficiency measures to their homes. The grants are run through a voucher system on a 50-50 co-contribution basis for up to $1,000.
For approved eligible members of the Northern Territory Pensioner and Carer Concession Scheme, the co-contribution required will be 25% (instead of 50%), making it more affordable.
Businesses and not-for-profit organisations are not eligible for this program. They can apply for financial assistance for energy efficiency and sustainability improvements through the Northern Territory Government Smarter Business Solutions program.
To be eligible to apply for this rebate, you must:
- own a residential property, your own home or an investment property; and
- live in the Northern Territory.
A number of other conditions apply. Check your eligibility on the Northern Territory Government website.
From 12 December 2017 you can source one or more quotes for eligible products from a Northern Territory business and select the quote which represents best value for money for you. You will be able to apply for a grant from 2 January 2018.
