NSW Energy Savings Scheme

The NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) gives financial incentives in order to promote the installation, upgrade or replacement of energy systems in residential and commercial establishments across NSW.

These incentives are known as energy savings certificates (ESCs) and are created for Accredited Certificate Providers (ACPs). Accordingly, homeowners and businesses can avail of impressive discounts on the costs involved in buying a government-approved energy system.

With regards to how many ESCs can be generated, it all boils down to the net megawatt-hours allocated to activities that contribute to energy savings.

This scheme functions by letting the ACPs generate and register the ESCs for saving energy, as long as it is backed up with concrete evidence.

Electricity retailers in NSW then go on to buy these ESCs annually so as to reach their respective yearly energy savings requirements. Therefore, there is always a demand for ESCs.

We help in the administration of the scheme and regulation of businesses that take part in it. The legislation associated with the governance of the ESS is made and maintained by the NSW Department of Primary Industries and the Environment (DPIE).

How we can help?

We find sustainable solutions that are easier to adapt to and are surely going to make a difference!

As per the Energy Savings Scheme (also known as ESS), we offer eligible businesses supply as well as installation of energy-efficient lighting products. These products include CFL & LED Downlights, Track Lights High-bays & T5 Troffers, T5 Adapters, Flood Lights and Shop Lights. This scheme covers commercial spaces in New South Wales and aims at helping save businesses hundreds of dollars in electricity bills annually.

The scheme is highly encouraging of businesses who are taking a step towards adapting to methods and means that not only adds to their savings but also reduces carbon footprint significantly. Under the ESS, businesses get financial incentives to make the switch.

Your Green Planet Commercial Lighting RESA (Recognised Energy Savings Activity) GHGR0102B/1 lets us create Energy Saving Certificates by virtue of switching already in place energy-intensive lighting equipment with more versatile energy-efficient lighting equipment installations in all eligible NSW business spaces.

We can also apply the obtained value of these ESCs against capital as well as installation costs of the energy-efficient lighting system thereby reducing costs by 50%. This opens channels for incredible ROI for businesses. Call our experts today!

In times when commercial spaces are making an effort to run successful businesses out of compact models and on principles of sustainability, such programs are bliss. As they not only contribute towards savings but also help such owners take a responsible decision without second thoughts.

The installation and other costs involved with the Energy Efficient Lighting is dedicated by carbon credits that have been created under the NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS). You can read more here
