Replacing an appliance with a different type of appliance

Customers have asked whether they will be eligible for a rebate if they replace, for example, a pedestal fan with an air-conditioner. Customers can be advised that

  • The objective of the scheme is to encourage households to reduce electricity consumption, and related costs, by replacing appliances with eligible appliances.
  • An eligible appliance can replace another appliance with a similar function and should assist households to reduce electricity consumption and related costs.
  • As an example, a refrigerator can replace a less efficient refrigerator. An air conditioner can replace another space cooling or heating appliances, as long as it will assist in reducing electricity bills.

Receive and install appliance before applying

Customer should be advised that to be eligible for a rebate, plug-in appliances must be installed (i.e., be in the possession of the customer) before an application is submitted.

Customers have 30 days from the date of purchase on their receipt to submit their application.

Beware of scams

The Queensland Government have advised that they are aware of scam texts claiming people have Climate Smart Energy Savers subsidies 'awaiting' them. The Queensland Government advises that they will never send you a text message asking for any information and you should not pay any money, or click on any links or attachments of said fraudulent messages.
