On January 1st 2021 the state government initiative formerly known as REES recommenced with a new name. The Retailer Energy Productivity Scheme underwent changes “to reflect current challenges”. The aim of the scheme remains the same: help South Australians save on energy costs.
The way we use energy and how much we pay for it not only affects us as individuals but also our environment. Dealing with these effects has become more and more important. It is no surprise then that over a decade ago, the SA government introduced an initiative to help households and businesses reduce their energy costs. The initiative underwent improvements in 2021 to reflect current challenges, with the aim of delivering “a smarter, more affordable, reliable and sustainable energy future for all South Australians.”
The scheme is implemented in the form of various energy-saving activities delivered to homes and businesses. YESS has been a long-standing contractor of the scheme has helped more than 80,000 SA homes reduce their energy usage. One such activity is the Appliance Replacement Rebate. This exciting new activity makes energy-efficient appliances for affordable for eligible SA households.
