Households saving an average $325 with ‘Appliance replacement scheme’

The NSW Government’s “new for old” appliance replacement scheme is saving households an average of $325 a year in power bills.
Eligible households, including low-income, concession card holders and energy hardship customers, can receive a 40-50% discount when replacing their old fridge or TV with a newer, energy efficient model.
Minister for Environment Gabrielle Upton said the Home Energy Action appliance replacement program is on track to cut around $40 million from power bills over the next 10 years.
“Households that need savings the most are helping the environment,” Ms Upton said.
“This is cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 16,600 tonnes a year, which is the same as taking 4160 cars off the road.”
Since August 2016, the Home Energy Action appliance replacement scheme has replaced more than 32,600 old, inefficient appliances in 28,100 homes across NSW.
