Power$mart Homes program open

The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is committed to reducing the cost of living pressure for Tasmanians.

We are getting on with the job, with the Power$mart Homes program designed to help eligible low income households save money on their power bills, stay warm in winter and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

Power$mart Homes is a free program that will supply and install a range of high-quality energy efficiency upgrades and provide energy saving advice for more than 1,000 eligible low income households.

The free high-quality upgrades may include LED light bulbs, a water and power saving shower head, a plug-in heater thermostat control, an EcoSwitch power controller, hot water cylinder pipe insulation and draught sealing on doors and windows.

Being delivered through local firm COVA, applications for Power$mart Homes are now open for eligible participating households, with the program to be rolled out in 2020.

For more information about Power$mart Homes, including details of eligible households, go to, or call COVA on 1300 092 857, Monday to Friday between 9 am and 5 pm.

Power$mart Homes is part of the Government’s Climate Action 21: Tasmania’s Climate Change Action Plan 2017-2021.
