Government Rebate - 4 Star Energy Rating

New Rebates Available

Queensland residents who meet the eligibility criteria are now eligible to receive rebates ranging from $300 to $1,000 when they replace their outdated appliances with models rated at 4 stars or higher for energy efficiency. This rebate program is in effect starting from September 4, 2023, and will continue until the allocated program funds are fully utilized. You can refer to the table below for a list of eligible appliances, and clicking the 'Apply Now' button will redirect you to the Queensland government's Climate Smart Energy Saver information page where you can find more details and apply for the rebate. It's crucial to note that only appliances purchased on or after September 4, 2023, will qualify for these rebates, and they must also be both purchased and installed after that date.

Important details

  • The QLD Government advises that funding is limited, and applications will be processed on a first in-first served basis.
  • Only one rebate is available per household and the program will close once allocated funding has been exhausted.
  • Only eligible appliances purchased from 4 September 2023 will be eligible for a rebate. Eligible air-conditioners must be purchased and installed from 4 September 2023.
  • Applications must be received within 30 days of purchase.

Types of Rebates Available

There are two distinct rebate categories on offer: one is a standard income rebate that extends to all eligible households in Queensland, while the other is a more substantial rebate specifically designed for low-income households. The rebates disbursed are contingent upon the type of appliance that has been acquired and put into use.
