Queenslanders to benefit from new bill busting energy efficient appliance rebate

Queensland Government media release

Queenslanders will be able to save hundreds when purchasing energy efficient appliances to help bring down electricity bills. Around 40,000 Queenslanders will be able to claim the new rebate which is up to $1,000 for eligible households from next month.

This comes on top of electricity bill rebates of $550 and $1072 for senior and concession card holders.

As part of the Queensland Government’s push to ease cost of living pressures for Queenslanders and bust bills, the new $22 million Smart Energy Savers program offers rebates for a range of eligible energy efficient appliances.

It’s estimated that making the switch from 2 to 4 star appliances could save individual Queensland households hundreds to thousands of dollars a year, and reduce Queensland’s CO2 emissions by thousands of tonnes each year.

Low income households will be able to claim the most on appliances, however all Queenslanders will be eligible to access cost-of-living support on selected appliances.

To be eligible for the low-income additional component, individual applicants must meet the Low Income Tax Offset threshold as defined by the ATO.
