What is the REPS appliance rebate?
The REPS Appliance rebate objective is to incentivise the replacement of old appliances with new energy-efficient models. This program helps South Australian households earn back money when purchasing new energy-efficient fridges, freezers, or dryers. Depending on appliance type and capacity, South Australian residents could receive up to $348. Additionally, replacing their old appliances with energy-efficient models is a great way to lower their electricity bills.
The Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) incentivises energy saving with various activities, such as this appliance rebate, making South Australian homes more energy-efficient, resulting in savings on energy costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

How do I qualify for the 2023 rebate?
The REPS appliance rebate is a great way to save on energy costs. To qualify for the rebate, you must purchase an eligible energy-efficient fridge or dryer from a South Australian retailer or online and make sure the completion date of the purchase is in 2023.
You can take advantage of the Boxing Day sales and buy your fridge or dryer in advance. However, to receive the rebate, you must ensure that the appliance is delivered to your nominated SA address in 2023.
For example, if you purchase a brand new fridge in December 2022, but it is not delivered until January 2023, you can use the January 2023 date as the completion date when applying for the rebate. However, if you collect the item in-store or receive it at your nominated address during 2022, you won’t be eligible to receive the rebate.
To ensure that your purchase qualifies for the 2023 REPS rebate, please check with your retailer about their delivery times before purchasing.
What appliances are eligible for the rebate?
So what appliances are eligible for this rebate? The answer is any brand-new fridge, freezer and heat-pump dryer with a valid listing on the GEMS register and a high energy star rating. Fridges, freezers and fridges/freezers with 3.5 or more energy stars are eligible for the rebate, as well as heat-pump dryers with 5.5 or higher star ratings.

How much is the rebate?
If you purchase your appliance and get it delivered to a SA address in 2023, you could be eligible for a rebate through the South Australian Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS). The rebates for 2023 are up to $348, depending on the energy efficiency rating and model of your appliance. The higher the energy efficiency, the higher the rebate.
Keep in mind that the amount of the rebate is not determined by the price you paid for your appliance but by its model and energy efficiency. To qualify for the highest rebate, you’ll need to find the most energy-efficient models available. Make sure to do your research and compare the features of different models before making your decision. That way, you can get the most value for your money and save even more with the REPS rebate when it comes time to claim it next year.
Priority group households may be eligible for an even bigger rebate. Priority groups are households that hold a South Australian Concession card or rent their primary residence for less than $400 per week.
