Does this sound familiar?

Raining in my heart


The dissapointment felt by the fact that that the Rudd Government let down a lot of people who showed faith in the green loans program, spent thousands of dollars to get trained to carry out the governement’s wishes only to be let down in the green loans saga.

However they[the Rudd government] restored the balance by rekindling the  fire of enthusiasum in the assessors by dictating a revamped policy to encourage the qualified assessors to continue with their endeavours to assist  the government in assessing the eco state of the countrys dwellings and commercial/industrial premises.

However the publics view of their initiative has been somewhat tainted and now they are reluctant to participate in that process of FREE assessments because of the past and recent failures in the Rudd/Garrett system.

The assessors therefore now have a difficult time in creating interest from the public in the Rudd eco plan and somewhat retarding the viabilty of the assessors continuing to support the programme because of the leaner version of income generation that has been created by the revamped policies in the assessment programme.

However it is now a far better system to work with and removes many of the anomilies that existed before. For that the Rudd government should be praised.

Sometimes when in damage control mode it can be difficult to get on the right track, they are to be commended.

Now the assessors can make a part time income as a result of the changes, but more to the point it will remove some of the operators that have entered the programme for the wrong reasons and are now on the way out.

I am very interested in making our environment more sustainable for the future and I see the Green Loans program, a new Australian Government initiative, as a way to help Australians tackle climate change by implementing in many cases very simple changes in their daily habits.

I am now A Home Sustainability Assessor working for the Commonwealth Government.

The Green Loans Program assists Australian families to install solar, water saving, and energy efficient products if they which to purchase these products to upgrade their homes making them more sustainable for the future.

After many hours of research, if asked by a client I will be able to recommend, a wide range of products that would suit their individual needs. I personally have a passion for this field and have educated myself in the many areas associated with improving ones living environment leading to a sustainable future.

I see a need for the services that I can provide and because I am diversified, I will continue to explore the many avenues relating to my fields of interest enabling me to expand any time in the future.

By making monies available to the public on a interest free basis many householders who are also concerned about their immediate environment will have the opportunity to change some or all of those things through the Green Loans Program, thus reducing their energy and water bills, increasing the comfort of their home and help reduce damaging carbon pollution.

Each year the average Australian household contributes 13 tonnes of greenhouse gas to the atmosphere — enough to fill 280,000 balloons — and draws an average of 292,000 litres or 73,000 buckets of water.

More Australians are looking for ways to help protect our environment from the impacts of climate change and reap the savings that come from using less energy and water around the home.

Around the house your green ambitions may be as simple as switching to energy efficient light bulbs and repairing leaking taps to bigger projects like installing solar panels, grey water filtration systems or rainwater tanks.

With your assessment report in hand, you can make water and energy saving changes as simple or as large scale as you like, as your sustainable home assessment report is the first step to qualifying for a green loan of up to $10,000 that is interest free for up to a maximum of four years.
