Sustainable Household Scheme
The ACT Government’s Sustainable Household Scheme provides 0% interest loans to eligible customers to help with the costs of energy-efficient upgrades. The Scheme aims to reduce, and eventually eliminate, the use of gas within the ACT. The loan is interest-free and provides those who are eligible with $2,000 to $15,000 with no upfront costs and up to 10 years to repay the loan.

Prepare for and install solar
The ACT Government has announced plans to reach net zero emissions by 2045, including phasing out gas and banning the sale of emissions cars by 2035. Now is the perfect time to upgrade to solar and/or get your home electric vehicle ready.
Solar is a great way to improve your household’s energy efficiency. Using renewable energy sources can reduce your carbon footprint and help you save on your energy bill. Detlev’s can help you maximise your solar system’s efficiency. We can give you the advice you need to choose the best system and accessories to suit your energy needs.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems generate electricity from sunlight. They are a great way to minimise your carbon footprint and reduce your energy bill. Your solar PV system collects sunlight and converts it to energy, storing it in a battery that supplies your home or business with power. If you happen to exceed your battery capacity, your system will feed electricity back into the grid, which your electricity supplier can credit you for future bills.
Charge your electric vehicle
The Detlev’s team is experienced in installing electric vehicle charging stations. You can charge your new EV either from the grid, or from your solar system.
There are a few factors you should consider when choosing an EV charging station:
- 1 phase vs. 3 phase electrical capability
- Plug type
- Socketed vs. tethered cable
- Software support
- Charging from solar
Getting your home ready to charge your new all-electric car can be daunting – but we make the process as easy as possible, recommending the best charging station to suit your household and your vehicle.
The Detlev’s team can evaluate your charging site and provide you with recommendations and a quote, helping you through the whole process
