Pensioners may benefit from free solar power
Local pensioners could benefit from a free rooftop solar system and installation worth $4000, according to Member for Terrigal Mr Adam Crouch.
"The Central Coast has been chosen as one of five regions to be the first in NSW to benefit from this NSW Government initiative," Mr Crouch said.
"By installing these panels each household will reduce their energy bills by around $300 a year," he said.
Eligible applicants must have a valid Pensioner Concession Card or a Department of Veterans' Affairs Gold Card.
To be part of the scheme, they must opt out of the Low Income Household Rebate for 10 years.
Origin Energy will be responsible for installing and supplying the solar systems.
