This page describes how the Energy Savings Scheme can help to reduce electricity bills by installing energy efficient equipment in your home
The Energy Savings Scheme may be able to help householders reduce their electricity bills.
By having energy efficient equipment installed in your home, you can reduce electricity use without sacrificing any of the benefits electrical equipment provides.
How the scheme works for householders
The Energy Savings Scheme provides incentives for accredited businesses (known as Accredited Certificate Providers) to help householders acquire up-to-date energy efficient equipment, such as lighting and whitegoods.
Accredited Certificate Providers may offer equipment to householders at a reduced cost. The energy savings are transferred from the householder to the accredited business, which then creates energy savings certificates.
Some energy savings activities are specific to the residential sector. As part of these programs you could be visited by representatives of an Accredited Certificate Provider with an offer to replace equipment in your house.
