Queensland State Government Rebate and Peak Smart Incentive 1st January 2018
Here at Aussie Airconditioning we know putting in a new Air Conditioner can be a bit expensive. However, with the exciting new $300 rebate the Queensland Government are offering is going to help reduce that bill.
As of the 1st of January 2018, the Queensland state government introduced a rebate to incentivise customers to install energy efficient products like Fridges, washing machines and air conditioning. This means if you install a 4 or 5 Star energy Efficient aircon you are entitled to claim $300 back which will reduce the cost of buying your new system.
With this rebate you can essentially buy a Panasonic model air conditioner for the price of a standard and save more money in the long run with your energy bills. With a 4 or 5 Star Air Conditioner it is predicted you will save a $135 per year.
Not only are you entitled to the State Government Rebate you are also entitled to the Energex Peak Smart Rebate. The rebate for installing a Peak Smart device is $100 for smaller split systems and $200 for larger systems. In total this brings the rebate up to $400 for small splits and $500 for large.
With the predicted January heatwaves, it couldn’t be a better time to install that new air conditioner you have been wanting to install and beat the summer heat expected here in Brisbane.
All Queensland residents are entitled to 1 rebate per household. This means you are only able to receive the rebate for 1 fridge, washing machine or air Conditioner.
Buyer must also keep proof of purchase and be able to show this documentation to be able to receive the rebate
