The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES)

A South Australian Government energy efficiency scheme that provides incentives for South Australian households and businesses to save energy. It does this through establishing energy efficiency and audit targets to be met by electricity and gas retailers.

South Australian households and businesses may be able to access discounted or free energy efficiency activities from energy retailers participating in the REES. Low-income households may also be able to receive an energy audit. The Minister has set the approved REES energy efficiency activities; however, each energy retailer participating in the scheme decides on what mix of those energy efficiency activities it will undertake to meet its targets.

To find out what activities energy retailers are currently offering, you can contact any of the obliged energy retailers in South Australia, not just the retailer currently supplying you. Energy retailers may contract out their energy audits and energy efficiency activities to third-party contractors, and you may also contact these third-party contractors directly.

The REES crew are currently in the Mid North Region and the feedback has been very positive.
