ESS Overview

The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) reduces energy consumption in NSW by creating financial incentives to invest in energy savings activities

The NSW Energy Efficiency Scheme is a government initiative managed by the Independent Pricing And Regulatory Tribunal (IPART), to reduce the carbon foot print in Australia and save the planet from global warming.

Through this scheme any small to medium size enterprise can substitute high consuming Metal Halide, Mercury Vapour, Halogen or environmentally hazardous florescent lamps at a highly subsidised rate – with LED lighting such as LED High Bays, Tubes and Downlights.

So here’s your chance to protect the environment and reduce your carbon foot print – whilst saving on electricity bills!

The process to achieve your energy savings

  • If interested, we will need to come on site by appointment and do an assessment for lighting upgrade
  • There is a regulatory mandatory Co-Contribution of $5/MWh of electricity saving (excluding GST) or whatever is quoted above the minimum. This needs to be paid on the day of installation
  • Prior to the assessment for lighting upgrade, we will need to obtain the following from you: Contact Name, Business Name, Business Address, ABN and nature of business i.e. Retail, wholesale, ware-house, manufacturing
  • A nomination form assigning the job to us as your ACP is required from the authorised signatory of the company
  • Once these formalities are completed, we will supply the lights to your premises on the day of the installation, oversee installation being done by the electrical contractor and complete the final stage of the documentation process
  • Old lights will need to be surrendered to us for recycling and will be taken away ASAP
  • Any additional costs – approved in advance, will need to be paid at the time of installation for e.g. power sockets, power cable extensions, hanging chains etc – including any additional time required by the electrical contractor
