How much can I get?
Businesses can receive a rebate of up to $1490 per fridge.
Savings vary between models. For example, you could get a rebate of $500 on an energy efficient, two door vertical display fridge. Compared to a standard fridge, this could save you over $350 a year off your energy bill.
The rebate is calculated based on the estimated energy consumption over the lifetime of the fridge.
Fridges cannot be purchased on this website. Buy or lease one through a commercial fridge dealer or manufacturer.
