Queensland Government Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Scheme
coming in 2018

The $20 million Queensland Government Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Scheme will commence in early 2018. 

Households will be eligible for up to $300 on the purchase of new 4 star or higher energy rated household appliances (washing machine, fridge, air conditioner) purchased on or after 1 January 2018.

The use of energy efficient appliances will help constituents in your community better manage their energy bills, reduce their energy usage and provide ongoing savings. This is also an opportunity for customers to consider other appliances with high energy star ratings given the potential benefits of more energy efficient models.

To support households looking to take advantage of the New Year sales, information about the rebate is available on the Department’s website. Households are encouraged to choose an appliance that suits their needs, taking into consideration their budget, ongoing appliance running costs and shopping around for the best price.

In order to apply for a Queensland Government Appliance Rebate, households will need to purchase one of the following eligible appliances:

  • 4 star or higher energy rated washing machine ($200 rebate)
  • 4 star or higher energy rated fridge ($250 rebate)
  • 4 star or higher energy rated air conditioner ($300 rebate).

Only one appliance rebate is eligible per household and proof of purchase will be required as part of the application.

Applications will open soon. Your constituents can sign up to receive a notification advising when applications are open. Terms and Conditions, eligibility criteria and the online application form will be available in early 2018.

Further updates on the Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Scheme will be available in January 2018. An information flyer on the rebate is available to support enquiries, alternatively enquiries can be directed to 13 43 87 from 2 January 2018.

We look forward to your support in promoting the rebate and assisting households in your region to incorporate energy efficient appliances into their homes.

We will provide you with updated information about the rebate in the coming weeks. Please contact Ty Taylor at [email protected] if you have any further queries.

Kind regards
