People of Darwin and Northern Territory This Smart Energy Grant Is For YOU!
It’s time to save money and the environment with the new Smart Energy Grant rollout !! The NT Government have graciously approved a new Energy Grant scheme to help stimulate the economy and save you a load of money in the process.
“So let’s discuss how an NT Smart Energy Grant can help you?”
Eligible territorian home owners will now be able to access energy-efficient products and services for their homes through a new $4 million NT Smart Energy Grant program. Meaning that new air con or hot water system is so much easier and cheaper to upgrade now. The best thing ? The NT government is going dollar for dollar up to $1000 . As a result, you can afford to get a good quality unit with a great warranty – now that’s peace of mind.
Also – For approved pensioners and eligible members of the Northern Territory Carer Concession Scheme, the co-contribution required will be 25% (instead of 50%) which means the NT Smart Energy Grant makes it affordable for all people.
But wait! There’s still more! Once you install a selected air conditioning model from Dunwrights you can get a cash back of up to $400 – CHECK IT OUT HERE
All works undertaken with the NT Smart Energy Grant must be either a new renewable energy source (solar power).
