Queensland renters deserve healthy homes

All homes should be healthy and affordable to run. Making homes energy efficient and powering them with renewables reduces bills, improves health, reduces emissions, and makes homes more comfortable during weather extremes.

However, too often renters are locked out of these benefits. Without protection, renters face the risk of rising energy bills and being left behind in the energy transition.

Queensland is reviewing its rental laws, and Renew is calling for minimum energy efficiency standards to be set for all rental homes.

Our analysis shows that with energy prices rising, requiring insulation in all Queensland rental homes would save Brisbane renters over $500 a year on cooling and heating costs.
