Electric hot water tariff incentive


The Energex Hot Water Rewards scheme provides rebates of $200 to eligible south east Queensland households that connect an electric hot water system to an economy electricity tariff.


Recipents can:

  • access savings from a cheaper electricity rate
  • help reduce peak electricity demand.


To be eligible for the program you must:

  • be the electricity account holder at the property, or
  • if you’re a tenant, have the owner’s consent
  • change your hot water system from Tariff 11 to a Super Economy Tariff 31 or Economy Tariff 33, or
  • connect a new hot water system in a new property to Super Economy Tariff 31 or Economy Tariff 33.

Other conditions may apply.
