Water Efficiency Program

Washing Machine Replacement Trial

The NSW Government’s Washing Machine Replacement Trial has helped social housing tenants across the state replace inefficient top load washing machines with a new front load washing machine to boost water efficiency and reduce the cost of living.

Enhancing water efficiency

In April until July 2022 the NSW Government’s Washing Machine Replacement Trial for eligible social housing tenants to replace their old top loading washing machine with a new, front loading washing machine helped saved on water and power costs.

This discount saved tenants up to $600 off the recommended retail cost.

There was a large response to this program, and we have now received the maximum number of applications for washing machines.
