Unfortunately FREE Home Energy Assessments or Audits are no longer available under the South Australian governments REES (Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme) or REPS (Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme).

If you are struggling to understand your energy usage – contact your energy retailer directly, they may be able to assist you with accessing either a FREE Energy Assessment or Energy Literacy program.

Alternatively, you can perform your own Home Energy Assessment by borrowing a Home Energy Toolkit from your local library and following the Home Energy Toolkit Audit Guide yourself. For more information on this look here.
