Queensland government funding for heat pump and solar hot water systems

07 Sep 2023

If you've been thinking about upgrading your hot water system to an eco-friendly and efficient heat pump hot water systems or maybe a rooftop solar hot water system, then from time to time the Queensland Government offers rebates to replace or install energy efficient home appliances and systems. For now, if you need a replacement hot water system, you are best to shop around for the best "all up" installed price from a reputable plumbing business.

As for the most recent Climate Smart Energy Savers offered rebates up to $1000 ... and was quickly over-subscribed.

Some details of the Climate Smart Energy Savers offer, now closed:
To get the full rebate amount you had to be from a lower income household but at the minimum everyone is eligible to receive at least $800 off either a heat pump, hot water system or a solar hot water system.
There was a limited pool of money the program so it's first in, first served to get the rebate.

A couple of other fine detail points for the program include that you:
- have the system professionally installed
- is a replacement for an existing inefficient hot water system

The Queensland government program page reports:
More than 72,700 householders upgraded old appliances and hot water systems under our Climate Smart Energy Savers rebate program.
This included:
22,232 energy-saving refrigerators
9,002 air-conditioners
24,020 washing machines
4,877 dryers
10,996 dishwashers
1,604 solar and heat pump hot water systems.

There are other criteria so be informed.
Why are heat pump water systems more efficient?
We have covered this subject in detail recently. Simply put a heat pump hot water system takes heat from the environment, the
surrounding air, and transfers that into the water. As it is not using a high resistance electrical heating coil, it is much more efficient than a traditional cylinder hot water system.

Why are solar hot water systems more efficient?
Solar hot water systems circulate the water to a heating panel system on your roof where the sun's rays heats the water which is then stored in bulk and provided to your household. These systems typically have an electrical booster heater, but for the most part, the hot water is generated by the sun for free.
