Publish Date 29/06/2018

Reducing your energy bills can be as simple as using appliances with high energy ratings. The Appliance Replacement Offer (ARO) makes it easier for you to upgrade your old fridge or television to a new, more efficient model.

Helping you to save!

Act now and receive a  40-50% discount on a new fridge or TV

What is the offer?
For eligible residents of NSW, the NSW Government's Office of Environment and Heritage is offering discounts on new energy efficient fridges and televisions through a joint project with The Good Guys.

When you replace your old, inefficient model, you can receive:

  • 40% off the cost of a fridge
  • 50% off the cost of a television

How will this help your household?
