Energy Efficiency For People Aged 60+ and of Low Income | Seeking Interest

During April and May this year, RDA Illawarra will be coordinating the recruitment of Illawarra region householders who are aged 60 and over and who are struggling with the rising costs of living to participate in an energy efficiency project.

The project is designed to:

  • trial and evaluate a number of different approaches that assist low income households to be more energy efficient
  • capture and analyse data and information to inform future energy efficiency policy and program approaches.

We are aiming to have up to 900 households involved by mid-2014, and we hope that you can help us achieve this target by forwarding details of the project during the recruitment period.

If you are in regular contact with these members of our community via mail-outs, newsletters, bulletin boards or forums we would appreciate your help with the recruitment.
