What is REES?
The Retailer Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) is an energy efficiency scheme which commenced on 1 January 2015. The REES builds on the Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme, which operated from 2009 to 2014. Under the REES, most energy retailers in South Australia will be required to provide incentives for South Australian households and businesses to achieve energy savings to potentially lower their energy bills.
Energy retailers that exceed certain thresholds are set annual targets for the delivery of energy efficiency activities to households and/or businesses. In addition, retailers with larger residential customer bases are set targets for ensuring that a certain amount of the energy efficiency activities they deliver go to low-income households; and providing energy audits to low-income households.
Many obliged retailers use the services of third party contractors to undertake activities on their behalf. YESS are an approved Third Party Contractor. Our details can be found here.
