Energy Efficiency Scorecard

MEFL’s social enterprise Positive Charge is assisting the Victorian State Government in rolling out a Residential Energy Efficiency Scorecard (RES). The Scorecard is an Australian-first home energy rating program, which will give a star rating for homes, in the same way as a fridge or washing machine has an energy star rating.

Purpose of the Scorecard

The Residential Efficiency Scorecard has been developed by the Victorian Government to help Victorians better understand the energy performance of their homes and to make informed choices about improving the quality of their living environment, while saving money on their gas and electricity bills.

Free assessments

Positive Charge is offering free scorecard assessments to Victorian households that include holders of the following concessions:

  • Health care card
  • Pensioner concession card

OR meet these criteria:

  • Retailer hardship program
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse
  • A community housing resident
  • Living in a rental property

OR demonstrate they meet the Australian Taxation Organisation (ATO) definition as a “low income earner”.
