NILS is pleased to announce that our 'Energy Saver Loan and Subsidy' Program begins again on Friday 1 July 2016.

Following a review of recent subsidy rounds, we have set the following guidelines:-

  1. A 50% subsidy will be applied to the purchase of energy efficient items.
  2. The maximum combined loan and subsidy available is $3000.
  3. Where the cost (including installation) of the required energy efficient item is more than $3000, and the applicant does not have the capacity to pay the balance, NILS reserves the right to increase the combined maximum to $3600.  Any decision to do this will be based on information (bank and income statements) provided with the application.
  4. Eligible Items:
    - Heat Pumps (min. 2.5 star heating rating)
    - Dyson AMO5/AM09 heaters
    - Washing Machines (min. 3 star rating)
    - Fridges/Freezers (min. 3 star rating)
    - Blockout curtains and pelmets
    - Insulation (minimum ratings apply) *
