"Upgrading an existing home from the equivalent of 2 stars to 5 stars can save a household $600 a year," ACOSS CEO Cassandra Goldie said.

"Mandating energy efficient standards for rental properties and investing in energy efficiency measures for low-income households, will make a huge difference to energy stress, health and wellbeing."
