PeakSmart Air Conditioner Reward
Many Queenslanders use their air conditioner during peak times, usually on days of extreme temperature. Everyone using their air-conditioner at the same time, increases stress on the electricity network.
If you are replacing or purchasing a new air-conditioner, help manage peak demand by choosing a PeakSmart air-conditioner, you will be rewarded by up to $400 by connecting it to the PeakSmart program.
Households and businesses can claim up to five rewards (per premise) for any type of PeakSmart enabled air-conditioner where a signal receiver is installed.
|Cooling Capacity||Less than 4kW||4kW or less than 10kW||10kW or more|
What is PeakSmart air-conditioning?
PeakSmart air-conditioning helps reduce peak demand without affecting your air-conditioner’s performance. It operates similar to the economy setting of an air-conditioner. The energy consumption is capped for short periods on a few days of the year and the system continues to produce cool air. The technology is designed to be set and forget so you won’t have to do anything or notice a difference to your comfort.
Where can you purchase a PeakSmart air-conditioner?
Energex in conjunction with major manufactures and air-conditioning retailers and specialty dealers have PeakSmart air-conditioning units available for you to purchase.
PeakSmart air-conditioners are available at most appliance retailers and air-conditioning specialty dealers. Check our list of eligible brands and models or ask your air-conditioning expert if it is PeakSmart compatible.
What happens once I’ve purchased my PeakSmart air-conditioner?
Once you’ve purchase your PeakSmart air-conditioner you will need to get a signal receiver from your retailer or air-conditioner installer.
The signal receiver is the device that is installed on your PeakSmart air-conditioner to assist with capping energy consumption for short periods on a few days of the year.
