Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) / Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS)
What is the Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS)?
The Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme (REPS) is a South Australian Government energy efficiency or productivity scheme that provides incentives for households and businesses to save energy. Replacing the previous Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) effective from 1st January 2021, REPS aims to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions through the setting of energy productivity targets (EPTs) to be met by obliged retailers. The 2021 target is set at 2.5M Gigajoules (GJ) (an increase of 200,000 GJ from 2.3M for 2020) and up to 3.75M by 2025.
How does REPS work?
To meet their targets, obliged retailers will offer incentives to deliver various approved, energy productivity activities. All businesses in SA are eligible for REPS upgrades, including commercial LED lighting upgrades, with the following conditions:
• Less than 20,000 GJ lighting upgrade per site
• Once-off $33 REPS fee per site
• Products must be accredited & installed by REPS-accredited electrician
The Green Guys Group is the expert on energy-efficient commercial LED lighting and we provide a Turnkey Solution for your upgrade. We conduct an assessment, inspection, installation, and application for the REPS rebate on the lighting upgrade in your business premises.
What does this mean to me?
This means that if your business is eligible, you can get an LED lighting upgrade at a greatly reduced cost. Rebates on the upgrade plus immediate savings on energy bills mean greater-than-ever ROI for your business. On average, our valued clients have received financial payback within 9 to 18 months.
