The Queensland Government is offering energy efficiency upgrade rebates for small businesses through its QBEST Scheme.

This is a fantastic chance to reduce your carbon footprint and cut down on your monthly expenses.


What is QBEST?

Southern States have enjoyed the benefits of government rebates for upgrading equipment to improve energy efficiency. Finally, Queensland businesses have the opportunity to access some rebates, too!

The Queensland Business Energy Saving and Transformation (QBEST) Rebates Scheme is designed to assist eligible businesses in Queensland by providing rebates to purchase and install eligible energy-efficient equipment.


Funding Details

Eligible businesses can receive rebates of up to $12,500 (excl. GST) rebates, covering 50% of the approved energy-efficient equipment’s purchase and installation costs. To qualify, businesses must spend a minimum of $8,000 (excl. GST) on eligible equipment.

Who is eligible to apply?

Businesses should fall within the small to medium-sized category to access the Rebates. This means employing 2 to 199 full-time workers. Each eligible business is entitled to one Rebate. However, the application can include multiple energy-efficient equipment items.


Application Process

Applications will be processed in the order they are received until funding runs out.

So you must act fast!

The closing date for submissions is June 30, 2025.

Before applying, gather all necessary documentation, check that the equipment you plan to install is approved, and confirm your eligibility.
