Gas Hot Water Rebate (Sustainability Victoria)
You are eligible for a rebate if:
- your household currently uses a peak (day-rate) electric water heater (a water heater that is ineligible for an off-peak electricity tariff), or a water heater fuelled by wood.
A peak water system uses peak electricity to heat water. Typically, they are small internal water heaters (less than 160 litres) and located inside a cupboard.If you have a peak hot water system your electricity bill will have no reference to 'off peak' electricity being supplied. This must be checked before proceeding with the rebate.
- your household does not have a second, off-peak hot water system.
- the property is your principal place of residence only. The rebate is also available for rental properties where the tenant is directly responsible for the energy bills.
- you will be installing a natural gas or LPG water heater that has a 5 star rating (or 4 star for internal systems). See the link at the bottom of the page for a list of systems you can install.
Rebate amounts are as follows:
- $400 for a 5-star instantaneous or storage hot water heater (4+ star for internal systems)
- $700 for concession card holders, as above
- $300 installation rebate if you live in a flat or apartment where there's a separate occupancy directly above or below you
Landlords whose tenants are concession card holders are able to access the higher rebate amount as long as the tenant is directly responsible for the energy bills.Download Gas Hot Water Rebate Guidelines PDF
