Pool incentives

If you’re located in an area where we are trying to reduce peak demand on the electricity network and you own a swimming pool, you can get up to $200 cashback by replacing your existing fixed speed pool pump with a 5-star pool pump OR $250 cashback by connecting it to Tariff 33 Economy.

Use our Incentives search to check your eligibility for a cashback. Pool pump cashback offers are currently available in the Townsville North West, Mackay Northern Beaches and Cannonvale areas. Terms and conditions are available on the Apply now page for each of the above Incentive programs.

There are two ways to claim cashback:

  1. Buy a new 5-star pool pump If you’re thinking of purchasing a new pool pump, it makes sense to buy a 5-star energy efficient variable speed pool pump so you can get up to $200 cashback1. Energy efficient pool pumps use up to 80% less electricity than fixed speed pool pumps.2
  2. OR connect your existing pool pump to Tariff 33 Economy3 If you don’t need a new pool pump, connect your existing pool pump to Tariff 33 Economy3 and get $250 cashback1. You’ll also reduce your electricity running costs by up to 18%.4

Claiming your cashback

Make sure your electrical contractor or supplier/installer gives you an invoice with details to confirm your pool pump has changed from fixed speed to minimum 5-star OR details to confirm your pool pump has been connected to Tariff 33 Economy.
