Last chance to claim $1,000 QLD rebate for appliances


You will need to purchase your energy-efficient appliance and have it installed before 4 December 2023 to be eligible for the QLD rebate.

It's a race against the clock to take advantage of the QLD government rebate of up to $1,000, as well as Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

That's going to be a double win to bring down the cost of purchasing your appliance.

Maybe you can even call it a triple win. The QLD government claims that households that make the switch to energy-efficient appliances can expect to slash their energy bills by an average of $102 each year.
