BILLS SLASHED WITH ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURES

Power bills for thousands of families and businesses across NSW will fall thanks to $72 million investment, by the NSW Government to ease cost of living pressures.

These energy bill relief measures will enable households and businesses to use new technology to reduce their energy costs.

$24.5 million has been targeted to low income renters, helping save approximately $400 a year on their energy bills. $35 million is aimed to help manufacturing businesses save approximately $80,000 per year by installing energy efficient equipment.

$12.5 million is set for Council’s to upgrade 60,000 energy-guzzling street lights with LEDs, freeing up $22 million in energy bill savings by 2035 which can be used for local services and infrastructure.

These initiatives will improve the environment and ease the cost of living by improving energy efficiency and providing bill relief for households and businesses. They deliver real, tangible benefits for NSW households, businesses and our environment.

The Government has also recently announced a raft of cost of living rebates and savings including free vehicle registration for toll users, lower CTP Green Slip fees, the $100 Active Kids voucher and the Fuel Check app.

DEADLINE FOR CLAIMING CTP REFUNDS EXTENDED TO 30 JUNE 2019

NSW vehicle owners will have more time to claim their CTP refund worth up to $120, with the NSW Government extending the deadline for claiming from 30 September 2018 to 30 June 2019.

We are extending the deadline because there is still $58 million still to be claimed by 1.35 million vehicle owners who could benefit from these refunds – including over 1,000 from just Kellyville alone. Thus equates to a total of $115,000 just waiting to come back into the pockets of those eligible families.

Claiming a refund is simple and easy and can be done via Service NSW either online, over the phone or in store. To check if you are eligible for a refund, visit: service.nsw.gov.au
