What is a Chimney Damper?

YESS are offering Chimney Dampers from Emerald Planet

Rebate Information Statement

The REPS is a South Australian Government energy productivity scheme that provides incentives for South Australian households and businesses to save energy.

The objective of the REPS is to ‘improve energy productivity for households, businesses and the broader energy system, with a focus on low-income households. This will reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.’ The REPS
achieves its objectives through the setting of energy productivity targets (EPTs) to be met by electricity and gas retailers.

Obliged retailers may offer energy productivity activities that are delivered to households and businesses by the obliged retailers and their third-party providers.

Your Energy Saving Solutions Pty Ltd (YESS) is a third-party provider engaged with various obliged retailers to conduct activities which will count towards the retailers’ EPTs.

Each activity may be claimed once per address on eligible appliances.
