NAGA is working with the Eastern Alliance for Greenhouse Action (EAGA) to deliver solar for low income households through a regional Solar Savers program
This builds on a project run by the City of Darebin - Solar Savers - that provided solar for 294 low-income households with no up-front costs.
Instead, households are able to pay back the cost of the solar system through their rates. The payback amount added to a normal rates notice is structured to be less than the savings achieved by putting on solar.
NAGA worked with the Eastern Alliance for Greenhouse Action (EAGA) to deliver a program across 22 councils made possible through a state government grant from the New Energy Jobs Fund and council contributions.
The Solar Saver project continues working with councils to provide low cost solar to households.
