Cash for Brisbanites

As of August 31, Brisbane City Council is offering a $400 rebate on a solar hot water system. The rebate is available for the first 1,500 housholds and can be claimed in addition to the federal rebate of $1000.

Mayor Campbell Newman stated "we want to give everybody the opportunity to convert from the very energy intensive electric hot water systems to go with something a lot greener". He also added that if the offer was popular it may be extended.

It makes a lot of sense to use solar energy for water heating, especially here in Queensland. And with so much financial assistance from the government, it's a deal that's hard to ignore.
Update: The Brisbane City Council is no longer offering this rebate.
