The Energy Efficiency Fund Initiative (EEFI Scheme) provides grant funding to
not-for-profit organisations for energy efficiency projects to assist South
Australian households facing financial stress.
Current status is Final
Following a call for applications for funding through the Energy Efficiency
Fund Initiative, the Commission has approved energy efficiency funding for
Uniting Care Wesley Country SA, Normanville Natural Resource Centre and Orana
- Uniting Care Wesley Country SA will receive funding for the distribution of
5000 energy efficient light globes and targeted grants to purchase energy
efficient products in country areas.
- Normanville Natural Resource Centre will receive funding to conduct audits
(including the installation of simple energy saving devices and courses on
energy efficiency for volunteers and householders) in the area around
- Orana Inc will receive funding to install solar power units for its newly
renovated housing complex. The solar units will help to provide permanent and
sustainable housing for adults with a disability and reduce the amount the
occupants spend on energy bills.
The funding became available through energy retailer fines for failing to
meet SA Government's Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme targets.
The Commission will make further funding available later in 2013.
