Home Incentives NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)


NSW Energy Savings Scheme (ESS)

The Energy Savings Scheme (ESS) is the NSW Government’s flagship energy efficiency program. Its main objective is to create a financial incentive to households and businesses to reduce their energy consumption by encouraging energy saving activities.

What subsidies can we offer?

  • LED lighting upgrades
  • Sports lighting upgrades if a reduction in energy is achieved

How does it work?

Energy Saving Certificates (ESCs) are generated through the reduction in energy use and liable parties such as electricity retailers buy the ESCs. One ESC is equivalent to one carbon tonne of carbon abated and targets have been set until 2025.

What does this mean for you?

Customers can receive a subsidy worth up to 80% off the total cost of product and installation depending on the going ESC rate and the type of initiative/s undertaken.

See how we can get your incentives started.

Example Case

A busy distribution facility is upgrading their old technology 400 watt metal halides to high efficient LED highbays.

Total value of upgrade: $50,000

ESS subsidy: $23,000

Paid price: $27,000

We handle all the paperwork and any additional services required under the scheme such as recycling, at absolutely no extra cost.
There is no better time to upgrade your business to LED than now.
