NSW Government offers $1,000 rebate for energy-efficient air conditioning upgrades


The NSW Government has launched a new rebate program as part of the NSW Energy Saving Scheme (ESS), offering businesses and households the opportunity to upgrade to energy-efficient air conditioning systems, reducing energy costs and environmental impact.

The initiative, which aims to help reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption across the state, provides up to $1,000 in rebates to NSW businesses and households when they replace old air conditioners with newer, low-energy models.

According to Efficient Energy Group, participants could save up to 50 per cent on their cooling costs by taking advantage of the rebate.

The ESS, launched in 2009, has already contributed to reducing energy consumption and costs in the state. By 2030, the energy savings target is set to increase to 30 per cent, and by 2035, emissions could be reduced by 70 per cent, with the ultimate goal of achieving net zero by 2050.

To be eligible for the rebate, air conditioning systems must meet specified energy performance requirements. The rebate is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and installations must be carried out by qualified organisations registered with the NSW Department of Energy.

Efficient Energy Group states that in addition to providing better environmental advantages, low-energy air conditioning systems can be cost-saving, offer better comfort, and enhance property value.
