Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith encourages eligible community members to take up the offer to replace an old TV and old fridge to reduce their power bills through the NSW Governments “new for old” appliance replacement program.

The appliance replacement program is part of the NSW Government’s $26.8 million Home Energy Action program which assists low income households to access energy efficiency upgrades.

“By replacing an inefficient fridge and TV it will save a household around $325 on its energy bill each year,” said Stuart Ayres.

Applications are now open for eligible households to receive up to a 50 per cent subsidy to replace their old fridge and TV. The Good Guys, the program’s current retail partner, is contributing discounts to further reduce the upfront cost of these appliances.

“I encourage eligible residents to visit the website and check out the appliances on offer through The Good Guys,” said Stuart Ayres.

Eligible households must be:

  • A NSW resident
  • Hold either a valid Pensioner Concession Card, Health Care Card or Low Income Health Care Card from Centrelink or a Gold Card from Veterans’ Affairs
  • The fridge being replaced is six years or older and the TV being replaced must be a plasma or cathode ray tube (CRT) TV.

“The online application is two easy steps and only takes around 10 minutes to complete,” added Stuart Ayres.
