RACV has launched a new product offering called the Energy Efficiency Assessment, available via Arcline by RACV. The in-person home assessment will be delivered by qualified tradespeople from RACV Trades and aims to help homeowners reduce their energy consumption and bills.

RACV General Manager Energy Greg Edye said customers have told RACV that they want to reduce the cost of their energy bills and were looking for advice and recommendations specific to their homes and aligned to their budget and goals.

“We have spoken to our customers including those looking to renovate, invest in their home, apply for a green loan, and those who are keen on energy efficiency more broadly. One thing was clear - it can become overwhelming to know where to begin to make your home more energy efficient,” Mr Edye said.

Based on this customer feedback, RACV is pleased to now be offering Energy Efficiency Assessments, initially available to homeowners in south-east metro Melbourne, with further catchment areas planned in the coming months.

“Customers can book online for a qualified tradesperson from RACV Trades to complete a 30-minute in-home assessment, answer your questions and email you a personalised home energy efficiency report, which includes a score for your home and subsequent recommendations,” Mr Edye said.

The feasibility and effectiveness of these options may vary depending on factors like your location, local regulations, budget, and the specifics of your home, so RACV recommends individuals research and determine the best cleaner energy solutions for their situation.

In addition, RACV offer a number of other cleaner energy products including RACV Solar (offering solar panels and home batteries), home energy offer through Arcline by RACV, EV charging stations, and RACV Green Car Loans.
