NSW – Energy Savings Scheme

NSW Energy saving scheme

Currently the NSW government is incentivising businesses to invest in technologies that  save businesses through reductions in electricity consumption costs. It is simple, effective and it’s actually a genuine contribution from the state government to improve the financial position of qualifying businesses who participate.

How it works?

In essence any existing commercial premise that is currently using outdated inefficient lighting systems in their daily operations is likely to be able to participate.  That business would then find a suitable energy savings scheme accredited installer to asses and replace all old technology lighting fixtures with approved LED fixtures.

The installation and replace light fixture costs are partially subsidised by the government with a minimum contribution required by the benefiting business.

The whole process is required to meet minimum standards of lighting specific to application so clients are not left with lighting of a lesser standard of the replaced lighting fixtures.

There is a component of paperwork and audit questions that apply to each installation but this is not an onerous task by any means.
