Step 3: Arrange your installation 

When you have completed the application process and are approved you will receive an email containing your rebate token number.  

Once you receive your rebate token you can contact one of our Approved Suppliers to attend your premises so they can quote you for the new system and decommission your old heater (if required). 

After the inspection we will provide you with the Supplier’s quote. If you approve of the amount quoted you can use your rebate token and arrange the installation of your new system.  

Please note that once you accept a quote you will not be able to use your rebate token with another Supplier.
