About REES

The South Australian government’s Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES), provides incentives for households and businesses to save energy through energy efficiency and audit targets. 

The REES scheme gives access to free or low-cost energy efficiency products (such as lightbulbs), through participating energy retailers.

An important notice about our performance in REES 

Under REES, large retailers have a target dedicated to delivering energy efficiency activities, including energy audits to concession, financial hardship and low-income households, referred to as ‘priority group’ customers. These targets must be met by all electricity and gas retailers including EnergyAustralia. 

In 2018 we achieved 18,416 GJ for priority households. Unfortunately, we fell short of our REES target of 33,106 GJ and, consequently, our obligations under regulation 27(1) of the Electricity (General) Regulations 2012 and sections 63AB(1)(b) and (d) of the Electricity Act 1996.

We’re disappointed and acknowledge that we must do better. 

To ensure we meet our targets in the future, we’ll be promoting REES to our South Australian customers, through Your Energy Saving Solutions.
