The state government hopes encouraging people to buy appliances with four-star energy ratings will help cut emissions, while saving people on their power bills.
“This rebate program not only helps Queenslanders purchase new household appliances, but it means they save money and help lower emissions for years to come,” Energy Minister Mick de Brenni said.
