REES Overview

The Retailers Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is a South Australian government initiative to reduce the carbon foot print in Australia, save the planet from Global Warming.

In turn, businesses save on energy use and costs.

Through this scheme any small to medium size enterprise can substitute high consuming Metal Halide, Mercury Vapour, Halogen or environmentally hazardous florescent lamps for no cost at all or at a highly subsidised rate with LED lights 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!
