Gas hot water systems - areas north of the 26 degrees south latitude
Tenants occupying Government Regional Officers Housing (GROH) (formerly GEHA) houses equipped with gas hot water systems are eligible for a reimbursement relating to the additional cost of having to purchase gas for use in the gas hot water system. This is not an entitlement to payment of the full subsidy to all tenants of houses with gas hot water systems. Reimbursement is based upon the individual usage in excess of 1.25 45kg bottles used in a subsidy period.
Due to movements in the Consumer Price Index since the subsidy was last reviewed, the level of subsidy for gas used in the operation of gas hot water systems has been set at up to a maximum amount of $29.00 per month as from 1 July 2008.
To assist in establishing the procedure for this reimbursement the following examples may be used as a guide.
Example 1Annual purchase 6 bottles at $113.70 = $682.20 Normal domestic usage of 1.25 bottles @ $113.70 = $142.12 Balance is $540.08 Cost of gas for heating water - $540.08 divided by 12 = $45.00 per month average costs Officer to be reimbursed the maximum amount of $29.00 x 12 months = $348.00
Example 2Annual purchase 4 bottles at $113.70 = 454.80 Normal domestic usage of 1.25 bottles @ $113.70 = $142.12 Balance is $312.68 Cost of gas for heating water is $312.68 divided by 12 = $26.06 per month average costs Officer to be reimbursed $26.06 x 12 months = $312.68
