When will the electric hot water heater phase-out occur in NSW?

Phase-out of greenhouse gas intensive hot water systems

The NSW Government has announced that the mandatory phase-out of electric hot water systems will not be implemented in existing homes as had been anticipated.

New standards for hot water installations in new detached, terrace or town houses are in place and will continue under the NSW BASIX - Building Sustainability Index system.

The NSW Government will continue to work with community-based stakeholders on a range of energy and water efficiency projects to assist households.
