The State Government recently extended its rainwater tank rebate scheme to include Department of Housing tenants. Tenants who purchase and install a rainwater tank may apply for a rebate of up to $1,000 through the Home WaterWise Rebate Scheme.
Tenants are required to seek approval from the department before installing a rainwater tank, as terms and conditions apply.
Please contact your nearest Department of Housing office for information about the conditions for installing rainwater tanks.
Some local governments also offer additional subsidies or rebates for purchasing and installing rainwater tanks. You can find out more by contacting your local council.
