Questions and Answers

Air-conditioning with in-built peak smart technology


How does air-conditioning with in-built peak smart technology work?

Air-conditioners with in-built peak smart technology help our electricity infrastructure cope with peak demand periods.

The in-built peak smart technology is activated by a device supplied by ENERGEX and installed to the interior of the air-conditioning unit by your installer. This is called a signal receiver.

The signal receiver allows ENERGEX to send a remote signal to the in-built peak smart technology to tell the air-conditioner to cap its energy consumption during peak demand periods (generally a handful of days per year).

The air-conditioner will continue to circulate and cool air, to ensure comfort levels are maintained.

Am I given a signal receiver when I purchase an air-conditioner with in-built peak smart technology?

No. The signal receiver is supplied separately by ENERGEX. You’ll need to contact us once you’ve purchased your air-conditioner with in-built peak smart technology to arrange your signal receiver.

Where can I purchase an air-conditioner with in-built peak smart technology?

We are currently working with retailers within the ECC areas to determine where eligible air-conditioners will be available for purchase. A list of retailers will be sent to you from mid-November if you select this offer.

Is the cost of installing an air-conditioner with in-built peak smart technology included as part of the ECC offer?

No. You’ll need to arrange and cover the cost for a qualified installer to fit your air-conditioner with in-built peak smart technology. The signal receiver is designed for simple installation and is not expected to add much time to the process. However, you’ll be eligible for a $250 EFTPOS gift card to help cover the purchase and installation cost.

Does my air-conditioner need to be on a particular setting for the signal receiver to work?

No. The signal receiver can activate the in-built peak smart technology on any setting.

How often will the in-built peak smart technology be active?

We’ll only activate the peak smart technology on peak electricity demand days (generally a handful of days per year).

Will I be notified before ENERGEX activates the peak smart technology?

No. The technology is designed to be set and forget.

Will I notice a difference in the way my air-conditioner operates when the peak smart technology is active?

Previous trials have shown you shouldn’t notice any difference to your comfort levels when this technology is active.

Will this air-conditioning technology provide savings on my electricity costs?

No. The in-built peak smart technology is only activated for short bursts during peak demand periods (generally a handful of days per year). This is unlikely to result in noticeable savings on electricity costs.

Will it cost more to operate an air-conditioner with in-built peak smart technology?

No. The cost should be no more.

How do I claim my $250 EFTPOS gift card for purchasing and installing air-conditioning with in-built peak smart technology?
