A National Home Retrofits Scheme has the potential to create 900,000 jobs in the next five years.

Our #MillionJobsPlan proposed deep energy retrofits to 2.5 million Australian dwellings and addresses Australia’s chronic shortfall of social housing by building 150,000 energy-efficient social homes. Independent analysis of the plan found that a national scheme would lift GDP by 0.19% and real after-tax wages by 0.31%.
