What is PeakSmart air-conditioning?

When the temperature rises in Queensland, many homes and businesses switch on their air-conditioners at the same time. We have created some innovative programs to help manage the network during these times of peak demand.

The Positive Payback program offers cash rewards to homes and businesses that help us manage demand on the network. As a builder or developer, you can access these same rewards for your new build projects by installing PeakSmart air-conditioners.

A PeakSmart enabled air-conditioner receives a signal from the network during times of demand stress, dropping the unit into an energy saving mode similar to the economy setting. This happens only a few times a year, but has big benefits for demand management.

PeakSmart air-conditioning is a 'set and forget' system that doesn't require input from the user and has minimal impact on comfort levels. It operates in accordance with Australian Standard AS4755.

Our PeakSmart air-conditioning initiative has been running since 2013. We have worked with over 20 manufacturers to approve more than 800 eligible models.
